Raised Beds in Copenhagen, Denmark

Post  sfg4uKim on 1/11/2012, 5:15 pm

Well I FINALLY went through more of my vacation photos today and here are raised beds in a community garden. Once they are approved, they can rent a plot and are allowed to put a small shed or greenhouse on it. They CANNOT sleep there though (as they can in many community gardens in Germany). Not sure how it works here, but in Germany the plots are normally purchased and can be left in their wills.

I've got a couple hundred photos, but I'll spare you. Rolling Eyes

My husband found this garden and became friends with the woman who rents this plot. Behind the greenhouse, there's a little storage shed with a small overhang area where she's built a "kitchen" with gas hot plate (she made mint tea for us and we picked a few strawberries). She also has a cute little playhouse for her grandchild.

Man, those folks are SERIOUS about their little plot of garden. I see some real money invested. And the are so NEATLY laid out. Makes my tabletops look haphazard.

My grandmother was from Copenhagen. I wish I had more time with her, she was in her 80's when I was in my 20's. We never really had enough time to connect. She went back to Denmark on a ship to visit relatives and I have no idea who they are. What a difference it would make to me to connect to the roots of my past. Thanks for sharing these photos, this may explain some of my OCD, lol. Or as I say to my DH, I have CDO, I like my letters in order.

I watched a film of those type gardens on Victory Garden one year when the British host visited and they are amazing. Fenced-in plots that look like darling little yards and little sheds made to look like cottages, but no electricity and owners must leave the premises evenings. Water is from personal barrels and a single spigot at the entrance gate to the garden area. Watching the film made my heart thump with yearning. Lovely idea which would be wonderful to adopt in the USA as well.

These photos are very impressive! Thanks for sharing. Of course, I am now terminally jealous, and Beloved Spouse won't rest until our garden spot looks as good.

LOL as you can imagine, this is but a small fraction of the photos I took. We went during the week, so there weren't very many people there, but those who were welcomed us warmly and invited us to come closer. They are really proud of their little gardens . . . and they should be.

So now I'm thinking instead of referring to my husband as DH, I can call him BS! Wonder how that will go over?
