We’re finally drying out a bit here, and it got quite hot (high 80s) for a few days. I’m battling new bugs (aphids on the snow peas and whiteflies on a couple tomato plants), but the neem oil seems to be working, thankfully. In preparing for this week’s update, I was amazed at the amount of growth in my plants just since last week. (The above picture is a view of most of my beds.) Green and growing? Then all is well! Take a look!
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!
My garden is a see-saw, it seems. Between trying to get my soil back in balance and the continual weekly night or two below freezing, it’s a wonder anything is still growing! We are a week away from the big Spring Planting, and I’m determined to get a harvest from my winter planting. See what’s happening!
