Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 9/16/13

Here it is, the middle of September, and our temperatures are still in the low to mid-90s! We are about 10-15 degrees above average! I’ve planted so much that has not germinated; some crops I’ve planted twice. I guess the third time will be the charm, but I’m waiting for the weather to break. Then, I’ll replant lettuce, kale, and brussel sprouts. I also have to plant more turnips and beets to fill in what didn’t germinate. My carrots are still pending; they take close to three weeks to germinate. I still need to plant radishes (been waiting for cooler weather), and in two weeks it’ll be time to plant spinach, onions, and garlic. Gosh, I can’t wait for it to cool off! The good news is: there’s still fruit in my garden, including new ones. Take a look!
