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.

Upstairs, the raspberry is starting to produce buds

It’s later than last year, but the cold weather might have had a role.

Downstairs, the wineberries are full of buds,

some of which had opened

.Also, some wild strawberries are coming in

I had propped up the wineberries and potato in the garden – the rain yesterday toppled them down.

.It’s strange how everything is so behind last year. considering the very warm March and April we had. I guess a cold week in May canceled it all.

I ordered some more wild strawberries seed. If it comes in time, I’ll have the gardening club plant then and follow them up.

.Sometimes last night it must have rained. There was no need for me to water anything today.
