It’s with a huge grin that I welcome Sarah The Gardener as the final guest on the Growing NOW Garden Tour 2015. From May through September we’ve featured real gardeners and their real gardens on this virtual tour. Sixteen gardeners have been featured and Sarah seems the perfect gardener to wrap it up! The tagline on her blog proclaims, Real Gardening in my Real Garden. Who could be better for our final featured gardener?
Sarah, a self-proclaimed city slicker, moved her family out to the New Zealand countryside back in 2007 and has been turning up the soil on their 3 acre property ever since. Bitten by the garden bug, she decided to share her real approach to gardening via her blog Gardening Kiwi and YouTube videos. As one thing often leads to another, before she knew it she was also publishing books. She has two ~ The Good Life — 4 Glorious Seasons in My Country Garden and the highly popular kids garden book, Play In The Garden. But what makes Sarah so special this week is while we in the USA are heading into fall and wrapping up our growing season, Sarah in New Zealand is welcoming spring and getting the ball rolling! That means the end of our tour is really just the beginning for someone elses ….and so it goes with gardening. It’s really never over, there’s always next season and something new to plant and grow! Someone, somewhere is always growing NOW.

Thank you so much for tuning into this season’s Growing NOW Garden Tour. Even though the tour is over for now, feel free to continue sharing what you’re growing via Twitter and Instagram at #GrowNOW2015. It won’t be too long and the Growing NOW Garden Tour will be back. We’ve had so much fun that we’ll begin again in May 2016. (It will be spring in the USA before we know it!)
Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend! I’ll be back in just a few days with more gardening news and blog posts. I’ve got some new fall radish and lettuce varieties growing in my keyhole garden, the pumpkins are ripening, and the mums are about to burst into bloom. I can’t wait to share!
