Getting tired of growing the same old ho-hum vegetables every year? Niki Jabbour’s new book, Veggie Garden Remix , is the answer for spicing up your garden life!
Even if you aren’t an avid grower, the photos and descriptions of these 224 lovely greens, tubers, beans and herbs from all over the globe should prove fascinating.
But, if you garden, you will definitely find yourself in heaven. Page after page details international varieties of food plants that can be grown in your own backyard plot.
Just when you thought heirloom or organic was about as exotic as it got, Niki reveals Cucumber Melons, Yard Long Beans, “Turkish Orange” Eggplants, Mibuna greens and Celtuce.
Had you ever heard that Hosta shoots can be cooked and taste like Asparagus? Day Lily and Dahlia tubers are edible and you should eat your Sweet Potato leaves? Who knew?
Niki’s “Like this? Try these” format, thorough descriptions and growing tips, are a reader’s delight. I sure hadn’t heard of the majority of these diverse selections. Now I am intrigued to give something new a try.
By sharing her “global gardening” experiments, Niki Jabbour opens up over two hundred new plant possibilities just in time for spring.
So, do you and your garden a favor and check out this brand-new gardening angle featuring international food plants. Although you may not find these seeds or plants in local garden centers, here is a list of seed companies recommended by the author:
Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company
