The book Veggie Garden Remix is full of interesting new and unusual plants that you can easily grow, creating an extraordinary and prolific garden.
I was so excited to receive this book, Veggie Garden Remix, in the mail from follow blogger and gardening expert, Niki Jabbour. It is absolutely gorgeous! Almost like a beautiful coffee table book in paperback form. However, it is also packed with great ideas, tips and detail information.
The best part; I'm giving away this wonderful new book to one lucky reader.
This post contains some affiliate links (that means if you make a purchase after clicking a link, there's no additional cost to you, but I will earn a very small commission.) Click here to read my full disclosure policy.
The theme of this book is to introduce the reader to new and unusual plants from around the globe. I particularly love the format of "Like that? Then try this," for several everyday vegetables you are probably already growing.
Here's a great example. If you like spring radishes, you'll love this winter watermelon radish. How beautiful is this radish? I'd grow it just for the color. Maybe it's the collector in me, but this concept seems genius.
Even though I'm mainly an ornamental gardener, I do grow a lot of herbs, and Niki has a great section about unusual herbs too. I have my eye on Papalo which is similar to cilantro, and Mitsuba which tastes like a mix of parsely and chervil. The fact that Mitsuba is a hardy perennial gives it bonus points for me.
I'd recommend this book to anyone who enjoys gardening. Perfect for gift giving. You could even create a gift basket with this book, a new pair of garden gloves, and seeds of one of these fancy new varieties.

Love eating cherry tomatoes and snap peas while working in the garden! This book sounds like fun!
I like to eat and grow all my vegetables. I have done it since I was a kid and love to do it. I would love to learn new ways.
I love to grow broccoli, and would love to try the watermelon radish.
Thanks for the opportunity!
What a fun book. I went away from vegetable gardening for a while because of fighting with the critters all the time to get it before they do! But this year, I am going back, and using lots of raised beds! I would love to win the book!
We love to grow tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers and radishes. Sometimes we try yellow squash and zucchini.
The book looks very interesting!
I love cherry tomatoes, my grandson and I pick and eat so much fun.
I always enjoy adding a creative reference book to my library for new ideas to try...
Hot peppers, ugly tomatoes & this year I’m trying peanuts. I’ve been having success with potatoes in old dog food bags...peanuts should work too...
I would enjoy to be inspired to try something new.
Began my serious vegetable gardening last spring with the usual tomatoes, basil, peppers and a few herbs. Did very well, learning about amending the soil, composting, etc. Can’t wait for Spring and would love to try new things!
Tomatoes! Especially heirloom tomatoes.
This looks really cool! My husband is already talking about his veggie garden and I'd like to try something new.
I love this book...easy to follow and supporting local ores by becoming one
I really would like to win this book. Very interesting and would use them in my raised garden beds. Thank you.
This book sounds amazing, I would love to shake up my garden and share the bounty 🙂
What a wonderful book! My husband and I are planning our first veggie garden (and we are retired) but this would make a great addition! And your idea about a gift basket is one I will use for my daughter ( aka daughter in law that's more than an in kaw)
