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.

David has a very sore back this morning. Seems he started out yesterday thinking he would begin to build a small bridge over the stream to replace the functional but ugly plywood and pallet bridge. Little did he know that he would complete it. This included moving and piling the rocks on either side to prevent bank erosion, cutting 3 2x12x8ft pressure treated planks into gracefull arches, cutting and drilling 20 5/4x 6 inch cedar treads and screwing the whole deal togther. Pictues to follow when the rain goes away. Yesterday was a glorious respite from a few miserable days and thus the pent up energy.
Meanwhile Sally got in all the onions and sifted lots of composted soil for same and continued the never ending cleaning of beds. Also gathered up a few carloads of wood from the back before it got rained on. Two tired old farts last night....
