A Book Review: Veggie Garden Remix | angiethefreckledrose.com

I've been such a huge fan of Niki Jabbour ever since I first laid eyes on her gorgeous raised garden beds. I remember coming across Niki's Instagram account and thinking to myself, this gardener isn't afraid to try something new. The admiration was instant. From social media I was brought to her website - NikiJabbour.com. That's when I found out she wasn't just an amazing photographer and top notch gardener. She is also an award-winning author!

A Book Review & Giveaway: Veggie Garden Remix | angiethefreckledrose.comAs soon as I was able to get my hands on Niki's previous book, The Year-Round Vegetable Gardener, it gave me the confidence I needed to try new things. I'm a Northern gardener who lives in New England, zone 6a Massachusetts to be exact. Our growing season is so short. I've been asked why I even bother gardening when we only have a few months out of the year to grow. It's too bad some think like that, but there are so many different ways to grow a garden.

Niki taught me that you can grow in cold frames and hoop tunnels using simple techniques and succession planting. After reading her book, I decided to embark on my first raised bed garden hoop tunnel that year. It was a great success, very inexpensive and a really educational experience.

About The Book

A Book Review & Giveaway: Veggie Garden Remix | angiethefreckledrose.comWhen I found out she was coming out with a new book, I couldn't wait to dive right into it. Veggie Garden Remix: 224 New Plants to Shake Up Your Garden and Add Variety, Flavor, and Fun is out now. I'm thrilled to be teaming up with Niki to give one of you lucky readers a copy of her book! 

If you are looking to find exciting and unique vegetables for your garden, this book is definitely for you! I've always had a deep love for cucamelons a.k.a. Mexican sour gherkins. I think it has something to do with the fact that my ducks go absolutely nuts for these super small veggies! After reading this book, I now have so many different varieties I'm looking forward to trying.

Inside the book, you are introduced to more than 200 curious varieties of veggies! She will help you transition smoothly from heirloom classics to the more unique choices. In the picture below, she explains visually how if you like to grow broccoli, you should try growing 'Piracicaba', 'Spigariello Liscia' or Romanesco. I was pumped when I saw this. A week before I received the book, I ordered some Romanesco seeds! Now, I'm really ready to try planting them.

Mix It Up!

After reading through this book, I'm now looking forward to trying so many different edibles. Here are my top three unconventional veggies I will be adding to my garden this year. 

  • Ground Cherries (Husk cherry) - Niki says that the flavor of a ripe ground cherry is comparable to pineapple with hints of cherry tomato and vanilla. They take 70 days from transplant to mature. This fun variety is from North America. She recommends giving 'Aunt Molly's' or 'Cossack Pineapple' a try. When I was attended the veggie trials last summer, I was able to taste the 'Aunt Molly's' variety at Seeds By Design by Terra Organics in Maxwell, California. They are absolutely delicious!
  • Snake Gourds (Serpent gourd) - I learned that this veggie has exotic-looking, creamy white flowers that don't unfurl until the sun sets. That instantly pulled me in. I LOVE moon flowers. Anything that only blooms in the morning/night is so mysterious and exciting to me! Like the moon flowers I know and love, they are pollinated by moths. They take around 70-80 days to mature and originate from Asia. Niki recommends trying the 'Buag Ngu' or the "Snaky' varieties. You can cook them like zucchini or pickle them!
  • Egyptian Walking Onions (Tree onion) - Niki explains that this veggie is a cross between bulbing onions and bunching onions. They are popular among permaculturists who use them in forest gardens because of their tendencies to roam. This exotic variety hails from Asia. They are low-maintenance hardy perennial plants (zones 5-9) that yield tender green onions for much of the year.

Those are only three of the 200 varieties Niki introduces you to in the book! You will gain a wealth of knowledge from this veggie guide. It will fill you with imagination and reinvigorate you if you find yourself in a gardening rut.

    So nice to see another Massachusetts blogger! I actually just requested this book from the library. I’ve grown both Ground Cherries and Walking Onions before. We love Ground Cherries, though I don’t get a lot of them as my kids eat them all! I’ve found that varieties can taste differently, too. The local farm grows Aunt Molly’s I think, which are bigger with an earthier flavor. I just grow the standard variety from Baker Creek, and they are smaller and more citrusy tasting. Delicious!

    Having a veggie garden is such a great idea, i wish I had greener fingers to give it a go myself I definitely need to look into this.

    I’ve always wanted to grow veggies in my garden and I love that this book gives you ideas and serves as a guide as well. Definitely something that I’d love to get!

    I am always looking for new foods to try and this looks like a great book to introduce some varieties I have never heard of. Thanks for sharing it at Words on Wednesday #W0W

    I want to read this book! We tried to start a garden in our backyard and failed miserably. I definitely need some tips.

    I can’t wait to grow cucamelons, fiesta corn, Turks turban squares and an edible flower patch on my allotment this year 😁🌱💚🌸

    That sounds like such an interesting book. We are from NY state and every year when I think of doing a garden I end up deciding not to as our summer always seems so short. It is neat to know there are ways to mix it up and try new ideas.

    Oh this looks like an awesome book to have. I live in western NY and just started gardening about 3 years ago. Last year I tried the square foot method and this year I’d like to try some new veggies and get an asparagus bed started. Thanks for the new author to check out!

    We plant a garden every year. It’s my therapy to work and raise veggies for us to eat. I would love to read her book!

    What an interesting book! As a vegetarian I am always interested in, well, vegetables! Plus living in California means I can grow most of them in my own garden. Thank you for sharing with Thursday Favorite Things!
