I cannot think of any human or plant physiological reason why it is not 
reccomended to eat leafy vegetables during the wet season. 

During the rainy season, there is an increase in insects and slugs due to 
the increased breeding habitat (puddles) for those animals. These animals 
may carry dieases and bacteria and they often find refuge amoung the folds 
of the leaves of leafy vegetables.
