Are you considering starting a garden this year? While I don’t talk about it much (which I’m hoping to change) I truly love plants. I have loved growing edible plants and some other plants indoors, and am hoping to experiment with an actual garden this year. My only issue is that I am very much an amateur. One of my goals this year is to learn more about gardening and I have been trying to find various books to help me with the entire process. Luckily, I recently had the opportunity to review a new book that seemed perfect for helping me start my garden – Grow Something Different To Eat: Weird and Wonderful Heirloom Fruits and Vegetables For Your Garden by Matthew Biggs. Once it arrived, I couldn’t wait to start learning!

Grow Something Different To Eat: Our Thoughts
As someone who is fairly new to gardening, I have to say that I absolutely love this book. Honestly, it is one of the best gardening books I have in my collections since it has so much wonderful information in the front of the book for new gardeners, and then even more detailed information for each plant. Unlike most other books, it also includes pictures of EVERY plant. Honestly, I am amazed they can fit so much information on a page without it looking crammed. Instead, each page is beautifully designed with graphics that makes each plant page extremely helpful. I am even more excited about gardening this year after receiving this book. If you are looking for a great guide for gardeners, I highly recommend adding Grow Something Different To Eat to your collection!
