The photo and articles about each of the finalists appears in the October issue of New Zealand Gardener magazine, in stores today. The winner is selected by public vote, which can be done via a form in the magazine, or online voting at http://nzgardener.co.nz/vote-for-your-nz-gardener-of-the-year-2013/. If I were to win, the prize pack would allow me to put in place a number of things that will enable me to do so much more toward my twin goals - feed my family, and help others in need while inspiring them to grow some of their own food! If you are a NZ resident, would you please consider voting for me? And please tell all your friends too!

New Zealand Gardener magazine is one of my very favourite magazines! I have a subscription, and can't wait to get it each month and read all the great articles! There is always lots of great info on growing your own food, DIY ideas, organics and much more, and a couple of very humorous articles too. You can even use FlyBuys points to subscribe! This month has a great articles on courgettes (pg 26), though the quote from Nigel Slater "I have always had my doubts about any vegetable heavy enough to use as a murder weapon" had me chuckling. The vertical garden design guide (pg 94) has several ideas I love, but the Herbal Liqueur article (page 98) isn't really my cup of tea, as I don't drink alcohol, but for many others it has some great ideas! I can't wait to read the rest of the magazine, but I'm saving it for after I've headed outside today and dug my potato patch.
