Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 4/13/15

It’s been a full week of hard work here on the homestead. I took the week off from my job to work in the garden, and it’s taken the full week to accomplish! With the warm weather, a plethora of weeds started to take over my garden – inside the raised beds as well as around them. I spent the week harvesting the last of my winter crops (and processing much of it), weeding (filling ten four-foot lawn and leaf bags), prepping the soil (adding Azomite rock dust and compost), top-dressing the cypress bark mulch around the beds, and actually planting my spring crops (both seeds and seedling transplants). But, it’s done. Next week, I’ll be sharing “How My Garden Grows” pictures, so you can see how my plants and seedlings are doing. Here’s what’s happening already in my garden. This week’s garden pictures!
