My miracle raspberry did it again!

Some distress a few weeks ago was immediately stopped by the milk baths.

Not only it grew new flowers which are about to become fruit, but the old fruit that stopped growing is now ripening sweetly!

And the orange pixies are starting to orange.

Plus one of the big tomatoes from the mystery breeds from the Green Thumb giveaway

But there are lots of tomatoes coming up.

On the roof, the miracle raspberry’s first harvest failed.

An affliction filled the leaves with small holes – and there are some dry leaves underneath. Still, since I started the ilk therapy, the plant overcame and new flowers are blooming

Also upstairs, the first gogosar – everything is so early this year!

Downstairs, in Dias Y Flores, the un-planted tomatoes (came from compost?) are starting

and the invading wineverries keep ripening gorgeously

All in all, a great summer!.

As it happens, yesterday I wasn’t able to harvest my own alpine strawberry seeds. By the time I arrived to the garden, early morning, little plastic box in hand, the pretty strawberry I had photographed the day before was gone.

As it happens, I also ordered seeds and they came today – so my preparations weren’t wasted, I started them today.

Also, in the garden there were some Green Thumb seedlings – way bigger than mine. I took 4 tomatoes and planted them on the roof. It remains to be seen what kind of tomatoes they are.

Today was a cloudy, cooler day, good for planting and transplanting.
