About the Author
For nearly 50 years, Southern Living magazine has delivered definitive Southern food, decorating, and gardening ideas to over 15 million readers monthly, making it one of the most trusted lifestyle brands in the country. A team of dedicated Southern gardeners and writers lent their expertise to this book, led by Southern Living Senior Garden Writer, Steve Bender. Steve grew up in Lutherville, Maryland, and, in his words "was exiled to Alabama" in 1983, for reasons that remain secret to this day. He loves fried okra and often selects dinner wine based on whether it goes well with fried okra. Known as the Grumpy Gardener, his column is one of the most popular in the magazine and his mission is to make gardening uplifting, accessible, and inspirational to all.
