Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 8/18/14

It’s been brutal in the garden this week, and there’s no relief in sight. The forecast for the next ten days calls for highs in the mid 90s to low 100s. It’s almost Labor Day, and I’m working hard not to get heat exhaustion while trying to get gardening chores done. And there are a lot of chores to be done. It’s transition time here – the summer garden remains and the fall crops need to be prepared for – and it’s blazing hot!! In fact, it’s so hot still that I’m going to have to start some of my fall crops indoors under grow lights for the first time, so they’ll germinate. How’s that for a switch? Well, in spite of the heat, I still have some pictures to share. This week’s garden photos!

Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 7/7/14

This week was crunch week at work (for fiscal year end), so I didn’t get out in the garden as much as I wanted to. Also, Hurricane Arthur breezed by our coast on Thursday, July 3. It was cloudy and a little breezy, but my garden got only 0.2 inches of rain. I was hoping for at least an inch or so. Oh, well. Better than getting a deluge, eh? So, the hurricane had absolutely no effect on my garden, thankfully. This week’s garden pictures!
