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.

Careful what you wish for!!!!
When there have been several cold damp mid May days one is inclined to greet that first sunny day with great cheer and happiness. Here on the ranch that feeling was tempered by dread as it became apparant that a hard frost would accompany that clear sky.
And so David's fingers are still a bit cold as he types. Last night all really tender stuff was covered with pots and or tarps or floating row cover. This morning at 5:30 the drained hoses were put into action and all other ghostly white plants were sprayed with water. The sun is up and it will be nice within a few hours when a walkaround damage assessment will be made.
Might as well dust of the camera and catch another moment or two in time.
