Wow…it’s December 1st already. Can you believe it? My Thanksgiving was wonderful, and I hope yours was, too. The week was busy – preparing for the big meal, of course. In the garden, we received just shy of 6 inches of much-needed rain in four days! The temperatures were mild, so I had the covers off my hoop tunnels, and all my newly-sown seed received a good soaking. After the rain, the night time chill returned, but all my plants are doing well. This week’s garden photos!
This past weekend, I harvested the bulk of my winter crops. Considering we had several frosts and two ice storms AFTER I planted, I’m surprised I harvested anything. I harvested the rest of my radishes and lettuce a couple weeks or so ago. Here’s what I harvested this past weekend.
It’s been a busy week in the garden. The temperature was in the mid-80’s, and there was much to do. I was hoping to get some of my seed in the ground this past weekend, but that didn’t happen. I spent twelve hours in the garden, and it was all spent preparing some of my raised beds. (I still have four more to do!) Why did it take me so long? See my post later this week, “The Good Idea that Wasn’t.” For now, let me share the good things from my garden.
This week has been a wonderful garden week – temperatures in the upper 60s to upper 70s, plants actually growing (finally), my seedlings getting bigger, and the first day of spring! Woohoo! Spring! I spent quite a bit of time out in the garden this week, and I loved it. This week’s garden pictures!
Boy have things been busy this week here at my Sanctuary Garden! Not only do I have 14 raised beds that I’m tending outside, I now also have six flats of seeds and seedlings that I’m nurturing. The weather has cooled off since my last update with temperatures closer to average, so the growth of the outside veggies has slowed a bit. Yet, most of my winter crops now have their secondary (true) leaves. And seeds are already popping through the soil under my grow lamps! Come take a look!
