It was a laid back time in the garden this week, mostly because I was busy with other things. I didn’t harvest anything or plant anything. However, the seeds in my grow room are starting to germinate, but still no germination from those Tiny Tim Peas I planted outside last Sunday; I hope to see something from them soon! Yesterday was 72 degrees, so I took advantage of the weather and pruned my apple trees and took some pictures for you. This week’s garden photos!
Happy news! It’s now spring, and that means it’s time to go back to my five-day-a-week posting. That’s right – starting this week, I’ll be posting every day, Monday through Friday, through final harvest in the late fall. It’s spring, and there’s so much more to share with you! Speaking of sharing, come take a look at what’s going on in my garden.
It’s almost autumn, but the temperatures are still in the 90s here in the Charleston, SC area. I’ve had to postpone some of my fall planting due to the high temperatures, but I’m hoping to plant beets and carrots on Labor Day weekend. What I’ve sown for the fall planting so far is in various stages of growth – from germinating under the ground to new seedlings to first and second sets of true leaves. I love the new life in my garden! The picture above is a Henderson Lima bean sprout poking through the soil (and grass clipping mulch) yesterday. Unfortunately, along with having new seedlings, I’m losing some established plants. It’s sad, but it’s gardening, where life and death are part of the cycle. My garden this week!
Crazy, crazy weather here in the Lowcountry. Rain and rain and rain, unseasonably cold temperatures, frost in March. Add that to my garden soil issues, and it’s no wonder my harvest is delayed! However, spring is three weeks away, I’m working on amending my soil (the best I can), and my plants are still hanging on. Come take a look!
