Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 3/9/15

It’s definitely March, when temperatures oscillate between below-freezing lows and early-summer type highs. We had a couple of nights below freezing this past week AND two days with a high of 81. How’s that for crazy? After a unseasonably cold February (coldest in the past three years since I’ve been keeping records), spring is around the corner. I actually got outside and did some flower planting, some harvesting, and made my big spring garden center trip. This week’s garden photos!

Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 2/9/15

It was a laid back time in the garden this week, mostly because I was busy with other things. I didn’t harvest anything or plant anything. However, the seeds in my grow room are starting to germinate, but still no germination from those Tiny Tim Peas I planted outside last Sunday; I hope to see something from them soon! Yesterday was 72 degrees, so I took advantage of the weather and pruned my apple trees and took some pictures for you. This week’s garden photos!

Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 11/17/14

We had another frost this past week, so it was time to admit that the summer garden is done. I spent the entire weekend pulling all my summer plants (other than my pumpkin vines) and harvesting anything left on the plants, including unripe chili peppers and tomatoes, which can still be eaten. I also made a trip to the fairgrounds to pick up my canned goods and ribbons and got a nice surprise when I got there. This week’s garden photos!
