Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 12/1/14

Wow…it’s December 1st already. Can you believe it? My Thanksgiving was wonderful, and I hope yours was, too. The week was busy – preparing for the big meal, of course. In the garden, we received just shy of 6 inches of much-needed rain in four days! The temperatures were mild, so I had the covers off my hoop tunnels, and all my newly-sown seed received a good soaking. After the rain, the night time chill returned, but all my plants are doing well. This week’s garden photos!

Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 10/13/14

What a week of weather extremes in my garden! A few days ago, we had a low of 49 degrees, which is lower than our normal. Then, this past Saturday, we had a high of 92 and broke the record for that day. I spent the weekend sweating as I planted purple-top turnips, mustard greens, bloomsdale spinach, and watermelon radishes. Crazy! (At least my fall planting is finally caught up – except for the onions and garlic.) Not only is the weather exhibiting summer and fall temperatures at the same time, but my garden is also producing both summer harvests and fall seedlings. This week’s garden photos!
