After years of growing the same kinds of vegetables, home gardeners are looking for something new to try. After all, if you like broccoli, you might also like broccoli raab. If you’re a tomato enthusiast, you should try garden huckleberry. Do you love cilantro? Why not plant its Central American cousin cilantro? These are just a handful of the dozens of examples best-selling author Niki Jabbour introduces readers to in this creative approach to food gardening. Each chapter features a vegetable garden staple — such as cucumber, lettuce, cabbage, and asparagus — then presents uncommon varieties and relatives that are worth getting to know due to their superior flavour or exceptional hardiness — or just to keep things interesting! Basic growing information is combined with fun facts and horticultural history that gardeners and cooks will eat up.
