In the middle of Berlin, in the Prinzessinnengarten community garden in Kreuzberg, a bar that feels like it’s in the woods.

Let’s take a detour into our community garden, which, by the way, was featured on Deutschland radio on Wednesday morning. More importantly, the evening before, Marko harvested our potatoes! To give you some context, above is one of our baby potato plants back in in May, just starting to sprout out of its hill. Read on to see how the potatoes look now…
Unlike Phyllis, I don’t have a backyard to garden in, but I am a member of a young community garden, Bürgergarten Laskerwiese. Anke recently photographed me weeding my vegetable bed there, 10 square meters (90 square feet) which I share with Marko. You are invited to visit us this Saturday, when the gardeners will be hosting an open house as part of the Berlin-wide festival Langer Tag der Stadtnatur (Long Day of Urban Nature).
Here’s a picture from an urban plant incident that spotaneously happened a few weeks ago. I was wondering how to transport four gangly zucchini seedlings from my apartment to the community garden. Luckily some friends dropped by to invite us for a stroll. So we took the zucchinis for their first trip outside. Maybe we should take our plants for walks more often. Why should dogs have all the fun?
