I'm always on the lookout for unusual plants, vegetables, and fruits to grow, so imagine my surprise when I found the book of my dreams, Grow Something Different To Eat (weird and wonderful heirloom fruits and vegetables) by Matthew Biggs.
I already have two of the fruit plants growing in my garden, a gogi berry Lycium barbarum, and finger lime, Citrus australasica. I will soon be ordering intriguing sounding vegetables such as asparagus peas, Lotus tetragono lubus, cucumelons, Melothria scarbra, and strawberry spinach, Chenopodium capitatum.
Along with the colorful photos are planting and care guides, tips on harvesting, and cooking. At the end of the book, there is a list of seed suppliers.
Even if you may not want to grow any of these heirlooms, I think you may want to add it to your garden book library just to enjoy looking at the amazing possibilities.
