About the author

Catherine Abbott (British Columbia, Canada) grew up on a farm in Northern Alberta.

She now grows fabulous vegetables that she sells in her local community. She also teaches gardening classes, and has developed a popular website called www.your-vegetable-gardening-helper.com.

Meghan Shinn (Cincinnati, OH) is the editor of Horticulture, a national magazine for avid home gardeners. Currently her plant-related pursuits are limited to container gardening, as she and her husband have only an apartment patio for outdoor space. They make the most of it with pots full of annuals and veggies.
