Morning glories are blossoming daily

The watermellon is growing – I think a new one showed up today

the miracle raspberry that I revived from dead is growing like crazy

and even one of the giant tomatoes I had given up on rewarded me with a fruit

In Dias y Flores the digging is stalled, but the garden seems to burst over the fence, but on my plot eberything is growing great

More later

In Dias y Flores the digging prigressed yesterday

almost stretching along the entire building

On the roof, my morning glories are blooming

and buzzing with bees

Maya harvested lots of tomatoes yesterday

and I got a watermellon!

While in Dias y Flores all my transplants are happy

those being the wineberry and one eggplant I grew from seed. And I had been eating wild strawberries every single day since my birthday!

Edibles tour

This morning Victor started the gardens edible wild plants tour.

The tour started in our garden with a small group that grew bigger as we moved along.

We stopped in Vamos Sembrar on Avenue B

then took a long walk on the perimeter of El Sol Brilliante on 12 street where we were joined by 2 of their gardeners

then stopped by Campos garden next to Maya’s school – also on 12th

and ended it it at Stuyvesant Cove

where we only had one blackberry to share – but as in all other places we discovered new interesting things.

A good time was had by all!

I transplanted my small “giant tomato” plant in the garden, 3 peppers and 2 eggplants back in the plot – all doing fine!
