5-23-06 VERMONT: This evening here it is in the 40’s, breezy and quite cool. There was over 5” of rain in the gauge which only goes up to 5.0. It was a wet two weeks. The grass is ready to be mowed for the first time. I counted about ten holes in the gardens representing perennials that turned up missing. Trips to the nursery coming up.
