NASA grows garden on International Space Station

NASA has found a way to grow plants in space.

The International Space Station has a garden of lettuce, cabbage and kale to help keep astronauts healthy.

The space plants are given nutrients and exposed to "light-emitting diodes" or LEDs to grow.

NASA says the plants are harvested after about a month before being analyzed and taste-tested.

No word yet if the flavor is "out of this world."
