Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 2/3/14

In my last post, I shared pictures of my homestead during Winter Storm Leon. Today, I’m sharing photos of my garden during the storm, as well as a few pictures of the aftermath. Ice covered everything for three days. That’s a record for the Charleston, SC area – at least, since I moved here 19 years ago. I basically gave up all hope of having any kind of harvest this winter crop; between the cold that delayed germination until just before the storm (and that’s if anything germinated at all) and the ice storm itself, I was in despair. However, I was surprised at what survived and what was damaged or lost. Winter Storm Leon in my garden!
