Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 3/16/15

In typical Charleston fashion, this week has jumped from winter to late spring practically overnight. I’ve had to switch my thermostat from heat to air conditioning, especially the day it reached 86 degrees! And my plants have responded accordingly. Bees are buzzing, birds are chirping, leaves are popping, buds are opening, and fall crops are bolting. It’s that time of year, folks! Spring is here! This week’s garden photos!

Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 6/30/14

It’s been another week in the 90s here in my Sanctuary Garden, but we did get rain twice this week. It was heaven sent, for sure! This weekend, it was overcast in the mornings and I was actually able to spray my garden with aspirin water and baking soda water, and do some fertilizing. I also planted a bed of Dixie Speckled Butterpeas. I read they love the heat, so I figured I’d try them. All in all, my garden is doing well, considering the heat and insufficient rains. This week’s garden pictures!
