I'm the author of Gardening For Geeks and founder of Gardenerd (gardenerd.com), where I publish monthly newsletters, weekly blog posts, and podcasts. I also specialize in small-space, organic vegetable garden design and consulting. Between 70 and 80 percent of my family’s produce comes from our garden of less than 200 square feet. I live in Los Angeles with my husband, some chickens, and two gardens.
