Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 6/15/15

It may not be summer on the calendar yet, but summer sure has hit South Carolina with a vengeance. Daily lows have been in the low to mid-70s, and the highs have been in the mid to upper 90s. Yesterday, we had our first 100 degree day. I was in the garden mid-morning yesterday and it was already in the upper 80s with high humidity. Unfortunately, I got a bit of heat exhaustion after only ninety minutes outside. Air conditioning, lots of water with lime (and a banana or two), plus some rest, and I was feeling a bit better. Meanwhile, please enjoy the pictures I took of my garden this week, despite the heat.  This week’s garden photos!
