Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 7/6/15

Good morning, everyone. I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend. I intended to spend quite a bit of time in the garden over the weekend, but it seemed my body was more exhausted than I realized. So I slept. A lot. I spent some time in the garden, doing a few things (like pruning and tying my tomatoes), but the major chores will just have to wait a few days longer. Funny thing – my mind continues to make plans as though I’m 25 but my body often screams, “Enough!” Ah, the joys of getting older. So, I do what I can as I can while I’m still working full time. Meanwhile, my plants may not be as healthy as they could be, but they are doing what they do best – fighting on. This week’s garden photos!

Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 5/18/15

It’s definitely almost-summer now with temperatures in the 80s pretty consistently. This past week, we actually had a couple of days in the low 90s. So much for spring weather. The garden is doing fairly well, but needing some weeding again, a bit of fertilizer, and a couple of foliar sprays. With the long holiday weekend coming up, you know what I’ll be doing. Meanwhile, enjoy some of the new things happening in my garden. This week’s garden photos!
