a little vegetable garden...

I'm back in Madrid! How was your week? ^^
Let's go with the post for today... ah, this is something you don't expect to see in a big city as Madrid, a little vegetable garden! You'll find here spinach, mint, tomatoes, etc. Some neighbours take care of it, and I think it's a great idea for spaces with no uses to make this kind of things.
I really don't know what they do with the harvest, maybe they celebrate a big salad-party? that would be fun!

¡Ya estoy de vuelta! ¿Qué tal la semana? ^^
Bueno, vamos con el post de hoy... Esto es algo que no esperas encontrarte en una ciudad grande como Madrid, ¡un huertecito! Aquí siembran menta, hierbabuena, tomates, espinacas, etc. Unos cuantos vecinos se hacen cargo de él, y luego no sé lo que hacen con lo que recogen... digo yo que lo repartirán o celebrarán el gran día de la ensalda! (eso sería divertido) Creo que es una idea genial para los pocos espacios muertos que hay entre los bloques de pisos.

Given the air quality in any big city I’d be hesitant about taking part in such a salad party but you’re right: looks like a nice way to use a spot that hasn’t been exploited otherwise. Hey, I’ll just wash the salad and then join you! :)

I would like to see neighborhood gardens in all the green spaces around a city. Produce taken by those who work in the gardens.

Your post reminded me of a story that was in the news recently. The police were called to raid an apartment that had some hydroponic plants growing in the basement. The landlord thought the tenents were growing marijuana. But it turned out to be tomatoes. :-)

I think people would live longer if they ate what they grew and not what some company buys and sells them. Your photograph is very good and is an example of what other cities and people can do.

Welcome back Dsole!
I guess a lot of people enjoy gardening in their spare time...(I'm not one of them ;-)

we have those community gardens here as well and a great way for the community to share in a positive activity and get to know one another! Welcome back! I guess i did not know you left - where did you go?

There is a special name for these...and for the life of me, I can not remember it. We have a group here in Sequim that is trying to get one started across from the high school. Folks who live in town have a plot of ground in which to grow vegetables...sounds good to me!
