Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 9/30/13

I think I can safely say the unbearable summer heat is gone. Finally! Temperatures are in the low 80s during the day, but they’re getting down to around 60 at night. Maybe NOW my fall crops will germinate and grow. If only we could get some more rain. We had a half inch this past week, but it’s not enough after several weeks of nothing. That said, I’ve been pretty lazy in the garden the past couple of weeks, and I need to get out and replant several crops and prep the beds to plant the onions, garlic, and spinach next weekend. I think I needed a bit of a break, and I took the holidays as a great time to do that. Now it’s back to work because things are starting to pick up in my garden. This week’s garden pictures!
