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 been off other places working for green stuff. Roofing at 62 is NOT a suggested activity for the faint of heart. Proud to have gotten out of bed the next morning without any pain anyplace. Whew!!! Meanwhile the first barn swallow showed up and the wall, although just wainscotted, has not been painted. So a discussion about should we ensued and it was decided that the birds could handle it and so the wainscotting was painted with a white wash to match the rest done two years ago (my how long things take to get finished around here!).
Started out a rainy crummy damp cold day and ended up a sunny, humid HOT day. David removed the panels from the woodshed, but did not yet store them given the state of the basement at the moment. Always tomorrow, eh!?!?!
Sally did mysterious upstairs stuff, and no gardening was actually performed today, although some was discussed. Peas are up, spinach is thriving, it looks like a good year.
