The author

Cathy Wilkinson Barash is a lifelong organic gardener. She has written many books but is best known as the author of Edible Flowers from Garden to Palate, which Martha Stewart described as "very excellent." Recently, she moved to an apartment in a historic building near downtown Des Moines and started growing--mostly tomatoes and edible flowers--in large containers outdoors. She experiments with growing vegetables and fruit indoors to harvest through the winter.
