Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 4/15/13

The temperatures have been in the mid to upper 70s all week here at Sanctuary Garden, and we had over an inch of rain. The warm temperatures and the soaking rain have caused my garden to sprout in almost every bed within a few days! And, as you can see in the picture above, my strawberries are ripening. I’m already eating some for breakfast. They melted in my mouth with sugary sweetness. Incredible! Come see what else is happening in my garden!

Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 2/24/13

What a week here in the Charleston area! I think the weather can’t figure out if it’s winter or spring. After 3.9 inches of rain last week, we received another 2.3 inches this week (almost all of it in the past two days). That was interspersed with below freezing temperatures and a couple hard frosts. Surprisingly, most of my garden has survived – including the strawberry buds (see above picture). Unfortunately, there were some casualties. Come take a look!
