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.

Swallows In Town

Due to the late warmup we had been slow to take the back (the northside panels) off of the woodshed this year. Coming home yesteday from errands we found several barn swallows circling the backyard hollering "Let us In!!!"
Before even changing to work clothes, David got out the power drill and started unscrewing the panels and removing same. They were in checking out their old nests after the first of 5 panels was off. They sure are eager to get at the business of moving in to their breeding ground for the summer. As always, we welcome their return. The poop piles on the floor are a small price to pay for such access to some wild things.
