As we go into the colder months and perhaps start thinking and planning our #gardengoals when the weather thaws in spring, this book both challenges and helps the reader to grow vegetables not commonly found in many home gardens.  From celeriac to kohlrabi to the potato, you'll find personal insight and nerdy poetics that make it a fun read.

To be clear: this book is not an instruction manual, it reads more like a wise friend giving their off-the-cuff advice based on their intimate experience growing their own food.  There are some simple tips and how-to's on how to plant them, tend them and prepare them for your table, but more overviews than step-by-steps. This is actually a big reason why we like it this book-- it doesn't give you the answers, it points you in a direction and you have to figure it out yourself a bit through trial and error.  Sort of the anti-internet approach to learning something new.
