Let there be light

Recent research by USDA scientist Gene Lester has come up with an interesting finding about spinach and other greens. Bagged greens in the front of a supermarket case, under lights, are more nutritious than identical greens of the same age at the back of the case, where it is darker. Apparently, the plants keep photosynthesizing (and creating vitamins) as long as there is a light source. Sounds like a good reason to grow greens under lights, and harvest right before eating!
