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.

What a day? Started out warm and got warm enough to break the record set in 1941 in Albany. It was 86 there. Here in the Hinsdale hills we only made it to 78, but that's the way it is in the hills.
Spotted the first field swallows today up back. They get here quite a bit before the barn swallows which nest in the woodshed.
David spend lots of time weeding the grass out of the roadside bulb bed. Got about half done in about 4 hours. Tedious stuff, the grass wrapped around the sprouting bulbs. Lost about 10 all together out of a few hundred in harm's way.
Sally is a bit under the weather and didn't get up or out much. Hope she feels better soon.
