I will provide readers with some easy to follow steps on what is needed to have a fabulous vegetable garden.

Do you have a small space where only a few containers will fit? If so, I will show you how to grow great vegetables in that kind of space. Do you live in an area where their soil is rocky? A raised bed garden can solve this problem. Do you have a backyard or acreage where they want to grow a large amount of food for their family? I will show you how to get started and keep your veggies growing well. There are many ways of growing great veggies and this book will show you how.

Bio for Catherine Abbott:

I live on the Sunshine Coast, British Columbia Canada. I grew up on a farm in Northern Alberta where growing vegetables was a necessity in order for us to have fresh, healthy food. I was in my late 20’s when vegetable gardening became my focus and passion. For six years I grew vegetables in my suburban backyard and in 2000 I decided to make a lifestyle change and started a small scale vegetable farm. I now grow fabulous vegetables which I sell in our local community. I also teach gardening classes, and have developed a popular website called www.your-vegetable-gardening-helper.com

I believe one of the best things in life is having the opportunity to grow and eat your own fresh vegetables. My mission is to encourage anyone who wants to grow vegetables to do so with confidence and skill no matter if it is in one container on a balcony or a large acreage of land. I love being a vegetable gardener and know there are many others who want to start growing for them and their families. Through my vegetable gardening book "The Everything Grow Your Own Vegetables Book" I want to provide them with the skills and knowledge to do so.
