The benefits of growing your own food are well-known: you know what's in your food (and what isn't) and, if you do it properly, the environmental cost is much lower. You may be able to save money, and you'll certainly eat the freshest food available, get some fresh air and exercise and re-acquaint yourself with natural cycles. All that and tasty veg are enough to persuade many people to pick up a spade.
But what on earth drives people to seek out unusual fruits and vegetables? Why do some gardeners push the boundaries of their plot to breaking point by trying to grow crops out of their natural habitat, or those that have resisted commercial cultivation?
In 'Jade Pearls and Alien Eyeballs' you'll meet some of the people who do just that, and as they share their passion with you you'll see amazing plants through their eyes. And for those of you who catch the bug, Incredulis has profiles of some less common crops that you can try in your own garden - easy unusual edibles that will grow alongside your carrots and tomatoes.Coming soon!
Jade Pearls and Alien Eyeballs is still in development. The first draft of the manuscript is finished, and it has been sent off for editing. Stay tuned for updates!
