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.

Once again David had to work today. Here it is Sunday on a Holiday weekend and he's retired and still, up at 5:00 to get ready and pack and all that and then drive 90 minutes. Got home around 3:00 pm again, and dragging butt big time. Couldn't be a bad boy three days in a row and it's raining, so can't work outside. Yes, he went to the basement and made the prototype box. It took a few hours, but it looks good. It is drilled but not screwed, because in the morning, many more parts to be made from this first one which we call the template. Gotta make 5 of these pups. Should be able to crank them out in the morning after the coffee kicks in.
Sally also had a non garden day, doing things like the wash and reading the Sunday Times. She spent some time promoting seeds, as in packets into wet paper towels to germinate, already wet ones into six packs and six packs into four inch pots. Gotta keep moving.....
All in all, not a big day in the garden department, but we got some stuff done. Be back tomorrow.
