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.

Sunday, April 06, 2003

Well, this April is turning out killer. First of all, no lamb arrived from March. 2nd, the last 4 days have consisted of one or more of the following:
snow, freezing rain, sleet, high winds, snow plows, accidents, birch tree tops kissing the ground.
And the row of sand raked off the lawn along the road has now been redeposited on the lawn! And the forcast is for another wet low to come up the coast and hit the cold and do the same thing for another three days. We are down into the low double digits at night. The faucet, just turned on, is already burst from incautious draining (who knew!). In short, this sucks.
And with all the war news, nobody is reading the papers or watching the tv in the house, so the spring ahead time change was a suprise this morning. First hint was the auto clock VCR seemed to know. Then boot up here on computerland and it too knew all about it. So David set the microwave, coffee maker, kitchen clock, other two VCRs (older and dumber), the car, his travel alarm, the living room and will do Sally's soon.
Off to NYC for a 3 day visit to complete a hotel sound system installation. See ya!
