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.

Today David spent several hours on the new window boxes. Got several made with a new improved way to hold the screen on the bottom (with 3/4 inch sqaure strips screwed in. The hard ones were the ones with angled sides. Sally spend most of the morning in the cottage working on the tree and stuff and David was called to do several construction things. We both had to be gone for a few hours in the morning and babysit in the afternoon, so we hardly did any gardening unless you count watering (which we do a lot of). Storms passed and grumbled to our north and east, but only a few sprinkles fell here. Most things are looking good and even the hostas that looked like they were toast during that last hard frost last week are now putting up some green shoots in the center.
The blue eggs in the robin nests are now little fuzzy things starting to grow.
