Welcome to a course in the cultivation of perennial vegetables (or edible perennials such as they are also known for)! Would not it be wonderful to harvest homegrown leafy vegetables and the occasional root vegetable from when the snow melts in the spring until late fall without so and replant them every year? It is possible if you grow your own perennial vegetables and not only that,, perennial vegetables have many other eminent benefits, such that they are:
