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.

Thursday, April 24, 2003

The weather reverted back to it's old ways (more below). We had a nice warm up for several days. David got all the willows cut back or rooted out of the stream banks. Near where the new cart and foot bridge will go, he was especially industrious and got most of a really deeply rooted one out. This was necessary due to proximity to bridge site. Also fashioned the first spanner (2x12x8) into an arch 7 inchs thick all thru. Now off to store to buy two more. Meanwhile Sally continued cleaning beds out and is constantly tending seedlings, transplants, trays, etc.
But this morn brought snow showers and 30F and wind. Uckkie! David finishing up the wainscotting in the woodshed and Sally back in her studio to create critters until this cold, damp weather blows by.
