Diary of a Boy Gardener

We are in the Berkshires, the beautiful rolling hills of western Massachusetts where the season is short and the frosts sometimes win. Visit Sally and David's Gardens and see how two old farts spend their time helping what plants they can find their place in this world.

Let a few days slip by with no entries. David had to work a few full days, so only had a chance to work the window boxes in the eve. The prime coat got put on last night and is still tacky this morn, so out in the sun to dry. Sally finished up the triangle yesterday we bought some more annuals for the new boxes. Meanwhile all this rain has inspired the lawn in a major way. David just ran a full tank of gas thru the 22" self propelled mower, which did about 1/3 the lawn. Maybe another third tonight if the storms don't materialize (at the moment they look like they are building to the west. Things are really growing fast.
A few days ago they were predicting possible frost for Sunday and we were really worried and have delayed putting up the existing 8 boxes and planting the tomatoes. Also there has been some damaging hail within a few miles of us in the last few days. But as Sunday gets closer, the predicted lows are rising and the threat no longer seems very real. But we will wait til next week anyway. See youo later tonight for a wrap up.
