It’s Thanksgiving week, and the first frost is inching ever closer. It’s actually late this year – the year my garden was a mess and I have no fall crops growing. <sigh> But the weather is what it is. That said, I spent the weekend harvesting the vestiges of my garden’s last gasp – a few winter squash and a bunch of peppers. I also put up a new portable greenhouse to house my key lime trees and some potted plants through the winter. This week’s garden photos!
Happy November, everyone. We’re six weeks into autumn, but you can’t tell by the temperature here in the Charleston area. We’ve had highs in the low 80s most of the week. Last year, the first frost was November 3, and it was November 14 the year before that. Looks like first frost is going to be late this year. Normally, we should have SOME color on the trees (albeit, most of the colors are tans and browns…NOTHING like New England), but we don’t even have that yet. Too warm, I guess. However, there are some signs on my homestead that autumn has arrived. This week’s garden pictures!
Good morning, everyone. Another HHH week (hazy, hot, humid) here in South Carolina. Combined with my vicious fiscal-year-end work schedule, I have been out in the garden only a couple of times this week. <sigh> I’m going through gardening withdrawals, yet I’m thankful for air conditioning and the small harvests I have been getting. (Small due to the heat, fungus/disease, and insects.) However, I still have some pictures for you this week. This week’s garden photos!
This was surely a week of extremes here in the Charleston, SC, area….again. I was quite concerned yesterday that I would wake to a late frost, but thankfully, the temperature dropped only to 35 degrees. Whew! I have a lot of new growth on my raspberries, elderberries, herbs, and even my grape vines. Plus, I’m beginning to harvest my asparagus. A frost would not have been good for the tender leaves. Fortunately, all is well in my Sanctuary Garden. Come take a look. This week’s garden photos!
