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.

Now comes the rain

The dry spell broke with a vengence. On Monday night (21st) a severe storm line barged through the area and watered everything. Here there were only some high wind gusts which brought in leaf litter and small branch debris. To the west and north there were straight line wind shears and a small tornado which damaged homes, vehicles and property. No reports of injury, but lots of power outages. David found the south side of Pittsfield completely dark as he drove home from the local community college at 10:30 pm.
The rain has continued sporatically and is forcast through Thursday. Once the sun shines the lawn will grow about 3 inchs!!!
David has been busy moving 10 chords of wood by the wheelbarrow full and coding a hometown website, thus not here keeping his promise to Blog more often (ah well...).
And of course there were three garden tours in the last two weeks. David has pictures, but has been too lazy (opps, busy) to size them, upload them and describe them. Someday my prints will come....
