I first read it as a library book; then ordered it from Amazon (it arrives tomorrow) - I almost never do this. But it's also a great reference book, especially for those who - like me - enjoy growing new veggies best. Definitely a book you will want to own! Maximize your gardening fun and productivity - what could be better than that?
I think this book is best suited to beginner gardeners or people have usually limited themselves to nursery plants and retail seed racks. For you, I think this book will be a valuable resource.
However, I would only consider myself an "intermediate" gardener, but, I am already familiar with a majority of varieties mentioned in this book. I think many people who grow their own vegetables are curiosity-driven, and certainly, anyone who would buy this book is. Which is why I think many gardeners may not get the inspiration they were hoping for from this book. Most of the varieties that are covered in this book are already sold (and often promoted) by prominent seed sellers, especially organic, heirloom and non-GMO seller. While you may not as often encounter these varieties on retail seed racks or at a nursery, you are likely to encounter them in catalogs or online stores. I realize it would be unfortunate if the contrary were true (since then it would be very hard to track down the seeds you need to grow the plants you are interested in), but this means the book does not offer much new information for many of us as is. If you are the sort of gardener who often finds themselves opening a seed catalog or browsing a website over the winter and saying "oh that looks interesting, I'll give that a try this season" I think you will find this book underwhelming.
But the majority of the veggies featured in the book are plants that even life-long vegetable gardeners may have never seen before. Dozens of surprising crops from around the world are included, all of which can be grown right here in North America. In my own garden, I've grown (and enjoyed eating!) ground cherries, yard-long beans, and 'Boothby's Blonde' cucumbers, but cannot wait to try many more of the vegetables I found inside of Veggie Garden Remix.
