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 ~ 2/16/15

Unlike much of the northeastern United States, we here in the South have had sunny weather this week. No snow for us. However, it has been a bit nippy. We’ve had several nights below freezing – with a couple more to come – so I’ve had the plastic on my hoop tunnels the past few days. I’ll get a break for a day or two this week when I can take them off, just in time for a bit of rain. Then the plastic will go back on for a few more frost-filled nights. I still can’t complain though. While my family back home is digging out of yet another snow storm, my garden is now showing a few signs of impending spring! This week’s garden photos!
