Of course we also have thousands of seeds.
Cool-season veggies grow best at temperatures averaging 15° cooler than those needed by warm season types.
Many have edible leaves or roots (lettuce, spinach, carrots, and radishes); others (artichokes, broccoli, cauliflower) are grown for their immature flowers. A few (peas, broad beans) produce edible seeds.
Most can endure short periods of frost. For best results, you need to grow them to maturity in cool weather; otherwise, they can turn bitter tasting, or bolt to seed rather than producing edible parts.
