Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 8/5/13

During this past week, we had quite a bit of rain. In fact, one evening, my back yard received 4.5 inches of rain in three hours!! Thankfully, unlike neighborhoods a mile or so away from me, my yard – and raised beds – did not flood and the puddles drained quickly. There was no damage to my garden either, other than a couple of tomato plants (and stakes) falling over from the soggy soil. Despite the mini monsoon, I was still able to do a few things in the garden, including applying organic fertilizer to what’s still growing. Although my garden is in between planting seasons, there still some things going on. Take a look!
