Sweden likes to make its people happy, and something one might desire when living in a city apartment is a bit of earth in which to grow things.  Around Gothenburg there are several community gardens and cottage colonies, so we visited one that we had passed on the tram quite a bit.  (Access via the Godhemsgatan or Ekedal stops.)

The garden colonies have been around for generations, and the stugas are equipped with utilities.  The lots range from 15-60 square meters, and it was fascinating to see what people have done in such a small area.

Fruit trees everywhere

 There's even a central playground for the kids while parents work/relax in the garden.
