These are all things that grow quickly in days or sometimes weeks - most of them are better when they are immature, carrots and beets are just some of the everyday vegetables that you should try. Each variety is explained, the cultivation and recommended varieties given, harvesting and eating, and for some recipes are included.
One problems, is that they do not really explain what soaks are and can a person just buy Daikon radish seeds or use a can of chick peas? Many might want to try these ideas but would be completely clueless on what to do.
Who knew you could eat day lilies; but it's certainly worth a try. This is a book that those who like to eat natural and would like to try something different for their kitchens and gardens would certainly benefit from.
