Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 8/25/14

Just when I thought it couldn’t get any hotter here, it did. This past Friday’s high was 101 degrees – actual temperature! The heat index was 110. Needless to say, I was out of the garden that day by 10:30 a.m. when it was almost 90 degrees. My poor garden is under severe stress from the heat, and I’ve been moaning about the harvests that aren’t as big as they should be (if any at all). However, when a local fellow gardener told me his garden was fried and kaput, I started to feel grateful that my crops were at least hanging on – even if by a thread. I guess, considering the heat, my garden isn’t doing that badly. This week’s garden photos!
