In Honor of Farmers’ Wives

Last weekend, I harvested winter crops from ten raised beds, then started the spring planting. I work full time on a flex schedule so I can have Fridays off, but I took an additional day off, thinking a four-day weekend would be enough to complete the harvesting and the planting. HA! The joke’s on this suburbanite turned homesteader!  Continued!

Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 3/18/13

The weather is finally warming up in the Charleston, SC area! In fact, it’s been in the upper 70’s to lower 80’s the past few days. Typical Lowcountry spring – we jump right into the warm weather. My garden is loving it, as you can see above in the picture of my Purple Top turnips. Now that it’s warm, it’s a busy time in my Sanctuary Garden. Come take a look!

Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 1/11/13

It’s sunny and 75 degrees in the Charleston, South Carolina, area today, and I thought it was a perfect day to post my first garden update. Over the growing seasons (yes, plural), I will regularly share with you what’s going on here in my garden ~ what’s been planted, how it’s growing, what problems I may be experiencing (as well as how I’m trying to solve them), and what’s being harvested. With the climate we have here in the South, we have three agricultural cycles and there’s almost always something growing in my garden. But wait, there’s more!
