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!.

The wineberries are ripe!

Victor and I went

took some photos

and ate. All this (and the 3 plants on the roof) came from that one little plant I rescued last summer in Van Courtlandt Park.

A nice way to start the summer!

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.

Two days ago, hours after I took this picture

as I came with Victor and Maya to harvest the first tomatoes on Fourth of July – I found that someone picked them ahead of me.

Today, it was the morning glory – growing in the big pots that got uprooted,

chopped or taken off the fence. I now know who is the crazy man doing this.

I left a karma spell on the last morning glory (expectations denied)

And I decided to change my outlook about all this as I seem to run into crazies wherever I go.

I savedĀ  (I hope) one of the morning glories – and moved in the garden. Where the raspberry Carolyn killed used to be (that one is thriving on the roof)

So, lower expectations – happy when something doesn’t get vandalized.

I picked 2 tomatoes barely red. No taking any chances.

I was in Van Cortlandt today – wishing I’d find a little wineberry plant to take with me. Within seconds – I saw an uprooted one. It’s in a pot on the roof. Life goes on!
