By Judith Cox, Master Gardener

Judith Cox started writing Veggie Bites at the beginning of the pandemic as a way to connect with gardeners. She really missed being at the Master Gardener advice clinics.

Judith writes Veggie Bites according to the time and weather each week. Winter articles tend to be about indoor gardening. Judith often has a guest writer who wants to share things they have learned; they are gladly given an outlet.

A Master Gardener since 2011, Judith have always loved working with plants, and enjoys sharing that love with others. After working for 15 years as the gardener for Saunders Farm, Judith Cox is a garden consultant during the growing season and volunteer at Master Gardener advice clinics at local farmer’s markets. As of 2020, she is the president of the Stittsville Goulbourn Horticultural Society.

Winter lectures cover a variety of gardening subjects at local horticultural societies. Judith also authors articles for local magazines and publications, and has a small business selling my watercolour/pen and ink cards at

Heritage vegetables are a favourite of hers along with roses and herbs and fairy gardens.
