In between being a stay-at-home Mom, volunteer, writer, photographer, and speaker Meg Cowden has been a full-time gardener for 25 years.
Her first vegetable garden crop was tomatoes grown in 5-gallon buckets in the city. Now she gardens in the western suburbs of Minneapolis.
Her garden now is close to a quarter acre. Growing fruits, vegetables and annual flowering plants.
Meg’s background in natural resource management led to her pursuit of succession gardening and interest in pushing the growing season on both extremes.
Her goal is to grow as much shelf stable food as possible for year-round consumption.
