Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 3/16/15

In typical Charleston fashion, this week has jumped from winter to late spring practically overnight. I’ve had to switch my thermostat from heat to air conditioning, especially the day it reached 86 degrees! And my plants have responded accordingly. Bees are buzzing, birds are chirping, leaves are popping, buds are opening, and fall crops are bolting. It’s that time of year, folks! Spring is here! 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.
