Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 5/4/15

It’s May, three weeks after planting, and I don’t think my plants are as big as they should be. Yet, my radishes, chard, and lettuce are growing just fine. Hmm…cool weather crops doing well, hot weather crops just hanging in there. Factor in that our nights have been in the low 50s on a regular basis this week (with the other night reaching a low of 47!), and I think the mystery is solved. More normal, warmer weather is on the way, so I should have more to share with you soon. Meanwhile, enjoy! This week’s garden photos!

Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 5/19/14

This past week started out in the 90s, but a cold front came through on Thursday. We got 2.7 inches of desperately needed rain! And the weather this weekend was perfect for this Yankee girl – lows in the upper 50s and highs in the mid-70s. Reminded me of late spring days in Rhode Island. Ahhh…. You can bet I spent the bulk of my weekend outside. And my garden was very thankful, too. This week’s garden pictures!
