Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 6/3/13

It’s been a crazy week at Sanctuary Garden! I harvested all of my white onions and watermelon radishes, the rest of my fingerling potatoes, bowls of lettuce and kale, and the first of my green beans, wax beans, cubanelle peppers, green bell peppers, and pepperoncini. That’s the joyous side of gardening. Unfortunately, I also had to go to war against Septoria Leaf Spot on my tomatoes and several insects (leaf-footed bug and adult squash borer, then found a couple stink bugs) to prevent an invasion. But my garden is growing, flowering (like the male pumpkin flower shown above – complete with ants fertilizing it), and fruiting…and that makes it all worth it. Come take a look!
