This is a good book for people who grow and like traditional vegetables (beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, courgettes, peppers, etc.) and who want to find out more about funky alternatives for these kinds of vegetables. And that's how the book is laid out - short "chapters" that cover each vegetable family in a "if you like this, grow this-this-or-this" style. And what it does, it does really well - I like cucumbers myself, and would definitely like to try white or yellow cucumbers, or try some of the asian or indian varieties I'd never even heard of. However, actually growing these beautiful veg will involve getting seeds from sellers either online (on the net, pretty easy!) or at seed fairs (which happen each February/March where I'm from).
The only thing I thought was missing was some more exotic perennial vegetables, which I would have liked to discover... I was kind of hoping for more about that when I purchased the book. But you can't have everything I suppose!
A really nice addition to my gardening book collection, and I'll have fun cozying up with it some more, and getting inspiration for my modest garden for the next couple of winter months. Thanks Ms Jabbour!
