Harvesting vegetables in Vienna has not been on my radar yet. Many community gardens have emerged over the past 5 years. Neighbours place crates in public space, in parks and around the corner and people come and take care of the plants they grow in the crates.The vegegables I am going to harvest to day grow on a field in the south if Vienna which belongs to a farmer.
A friend has a small field at rent and invited me to pull the the last vegetables before the season is over. You could say I am going to meet the "real thing".
As a vegan this is probably the best way to spend a sunny afternoon with a friend. I will see how I feel later today. Cold, dirty and aching knees? Good to know there is always a hot tub at home to comfort me.
Now I am off to recharge the battery of my camera. :-)
Part of the fun: we go there by train, with huge IKEA-bags and return with bags full of vegetables. Going there by car would be only half the fun!
Have a nice weekend!
