Bok Choy is a very healthy and commonly used Asian green vegetable. You will often find it in a stir fry. This very healthy plant is full of Vitamins like A and C, as well as powerful anti oxidants which are great for an overall healthy life style. Bok Choy is relatively easy to grow, and can be planted as a companion to plants such as lettuce, spinach and arugula. The only difficulty that often arises is that bok choy plants are very susceptible to bugs. You can combat this with a sort of crop rotation, or instead plant bok choy in the fall.
