Report from the Head Gardener, day 8:
Weeds: out of control.
Rocks: is it possible for rocks to reproduce themselves, and grow like crazy? Because every time I return to the garden I swear there are more stones to be hauled away.
Weather: gray, cloudy, and cool, but at least the curious phenomenon of spring blizzards has (finally) ceased.
Vegetables: alive, albeit noticeably suffering from the effort of growing around rocks in clay-heavy soil with little to no actual sunlight.
Ah, the joys of a community garden plot in lovely grey Munich.
This is my lovely assistant, aka hubby:
As you can see we have a total of 10 different beds of vegetables. Most were pre-planted by the city, but we probably won’t keep everything they planted for us, as it’s all just so German (!): too many radishes, beets, turnips, kohlrabi, and cabbage.
So, so, so too much cabbage.
p.s. This study states the obvious about community gardening.
