Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 4/14/14

Here it is, the middle of April, and I’m just beginning my spring planting. I am no where near where I should be by this time of year! The weather is much to blame there, but my schedule isn’t helping. Well, at least I harvested all my winter-planted crops this weekend and got those prepped and put up. I also did a few things in the garden, getting ready for planting in the next few days.

Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 3/24/14

This week has been a wonderful garden week – temperatures in the upper 60s to upper 70s, plants actually growing (finally), my seedlings getting bigger, and the first day of spring! Woohoo! Spring! I spent quite a bit of time out in the garden this week, and I loved it. This week’s garden pictures!

Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 11/18/13

The theme of today’s update is — our first frost! Yes, we had our first frost here this past week. The temperature was below freezing for almost 8 hours, dipping as low as 27 degrees. I covered my pepper plants and tomato plant, but it was fruitless. In the words of Bones from Star Trek, “They’re dead, Jim.” <sigh> Well, it was good while it lasted, and I did harvest a bunch before the frost – and even salvaged a few things after the frost. My fall crops and my herbs survived just fine, thankfully. This week’s garden pictures!
