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.

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.

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

wineberries from the plot

The February 16 batch is doing well. Out of the 12 seeds we all planted we got 8 plants so far

The tallest ones are the watermelons – not something one should plant in February. They sprouted within days. The next largest is a gogosar, then a tomato and 2 tiny delphiniums – there’s a third one still in the incubator.

I shall start the next batch soon – for the ICE gardening club, then we’ll have Maya’s birthday seeding.
