back to the blog

Last season I built a roof to protect my mainly tropical plant collection from the chilly wet German weather (tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, cucumbers, tomatillos etc. all originated in hot climates). It worked out quite well so far, I had no signs of  Phytophthora infestans coming back, which had wiped out my tomato harvest in 2010.

- the Mutatofarm this July in full bloom, now with a plastic cover to keep the plants dry -


- the planters are also slowly spreading over other parts of P:142, these are standing in front of Dionisis Kavallieratos' Greek/Roman educational alphabet fence -
