Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 8/10/15

Good morning, everyone! I’m back. After a whirlwind work schedule with the auditors, I drove two days to see my family in Rhode Island for a week (then drove two days back). I’m a bit tired, but I had a good time. It was nice to take a break! Of course, now it’s back to the grind – and a garden that is in desperate need of help. While I was away, everything grew (except the veggies) – weeds, grass, vines from the neighbor’s yard – even poison ivy (which my Garden Wilson pulled for me). Meanwhile, my veggie plants are still struggling to produce. But, they keep trying. Come take a look. This week’s garden photos!

Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 6/22/15

Good morning from a melted gardener. Yes, folks, it’s STILL in the 100s. Eight days and counting with no relief in sight for another week, at least. I’ve not been able to get into the garden for more than 15 minutes at a time due to the heat. That leaves out any gardening chores other than a quick harvest at the end of the day. And even then, it’s unbearably hot. Example? The other night at midnight, it was 89 degrees with a heat index of 94. At midnight! And remember I planned to get up at sunrise to try to get some gardening done? Well, yesterday morning, at 5:30 a.m. it was 80 degrees with 70%+ humidity! Please let a cold front come through with some rain to water my garden and cool things off, and soon! That said, most of the pictures I’m sharing today are of harvests and kitchen cooking.
