Where can I get a list of vegetables that grow during the day?

 

Q. I am trying to get a list of vegetables that grow during the day. My partner has a skin condition that requires a diet of day growing foods. Where can I find such a list? I am having difficulty attaining this information. Any assistance would be helpful

 

A. All vegetables grow during the day because they require light. One exception to this would be plants grown in a greenhouse during the winter months might be exposed to artificial light at night. Research the vegetables you are currently purchasing to find out how they are grown. Follow-up with his doctor if you are unsure about his special diet and work with a dietitian in your area to help with meal planning and eating right for his diet.
