Learn more about rare heirloom varieties, unusual growing options  and more in this publication.  Some of my favorite chapters are the Cool Crop and Winter Squash.

I actually purchased some ‘bitter melon’ seeds to grow after reading this inspiring publication by Matt Mattus.

Bitter Melon in the Book


This review was done during the Spring planting season so of course, the cool crop vegetables caught my eye.  The book inspired me to finally start my Rhubarb patch out by the Geodesic biodome and some asparagus.

Here are the asparagus starters I am growing this year.  I need to do a video dedicated to JUST asparagus after learning so much from the author.  I have over 20 plants to grow ( as directed in the publication).


As noted I started my own rhubarb after reading how to plant in Mastering The ART of Vegetable Gardening.  Victoria ( the classic variety with dark pink stalks) is the one I choose to grow.
