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.

Wednesday, April 16, 2003

Another very warm day. We made it to 81 here in Hinsdale but didn't check the TV, so no clue if another record, but suspect it is. David has almost finished weeding the bed along the road. Got another 5 hours in today, then the hands got too sore to continue, so switched to less demanding tasks, like writing PHP which exercises the fingers in a different way, but one feels it....
Later in the day the temperature began to plunge and it looks like below freezing tonight. Hope all those daffies and early lilies can handle it, cause no covers from the kids to help out.
Lots of frogs croaking their heads off out there. Blue heron flew over again. More field swallows. Tons of robins. Had a cardinal for several days, but not a peep the last two.
All the wood is in and lots of raking done. Sod divits replaced and obstructions in the brook removed. Busy day.
Sally felt better and worked dressing a fabric rabbit.
Life is good.
