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.

So now come the dark, damp days. Which means weeds and grass grow greatly and luckily, so does the good stuff. Believe it or not, it took David 7 solid hours today to do the bank roses, which means trim them, loosen and clean around them, then 5 gallons of fish/seaweed drench down to the roots. That's 5 wheelbarrows full of trimmings and weeds and lots and lots of gallons of food. Hope they appreciate it.
Meanwhile Sally has been cleaning out the veggies, making more beds for more stuff (still need to do carrotts and more tattoes and others). She's also trying to figure out the best way to do the wattle house roof (grape vines the latest experiment). She is also preparing pots and boxes for around the place and down in town. All in all, two folks worked most of this cold and overcast day in the garden and are now pooped.
