75 Exciting Vegetables by Jack Staub was a gift from my in-laws in Vermont last Christmas. This book has had such a positive impact on my perspective of gardening. It basically took my method and my goals to the next level. Not only is eating home grown healthy but if done properly it can truly be an art, not only visually but for the palette as well.
Staub has a direct approach in his writing that allows for a quick read while presenting easy to remember information. He gives the reader a brief history of the select vegetable, the basic info in regards to growing, ways in which to prepare and serve the delicious addition to your garden and in between it all weaves a sly sense of humor.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in trying something new in their garden next spring. Squash to peppers, tomatoes to eggplants you will find something that strikes your curiosity and interest.
