Budding socialist love? AOC & Corbyn progress to next level with… top gardening tips
The two left-wing icons of the Western world, engaged in a “wide-reaching” conversation earlier in the year, prompting much excitement among British and American democratic socialists.
Now things seem to be getting ‘serious’ after AOC, the New York congresswoman, called on her Twitter followers for help on what to plant in her new small community garden plot.
“Any green-thumbs out with sage words of advice?” she asked.
Happy Sunday! Excited to say I’m tending to a community garden plot for the next few months :)It’s a 4x4 plot we get to tend to now through Sept.Any green-thumbs out with sage🌱 words of advice?What should I plant? (Ideally at least 1 edible thing but we can do flowers too)— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) April 7, 2019
Step up one Jeremy Bernard Corbyn, proud owner of a garden allotment in north London. Responding to AOC’s plea, the Labour leader, who insists his vegetable patch “helps him achieve his calm Monsieur Zen demeanor,” was only too happy to give a few words of advice to his socialist comrade.
...go for some flowers and plants that attract bees and thus improve pollination for everyone - lavender or comfrey good for bees. Best way to be healthy is to get your hands dirty – in the soil!
For a new plot, first see what is already growing! Then go for some flowers and plants that attract bees and thus improve pollination for everyone - lavender or comfrey good for bees. Best way to be healthy is to get your hands dirty - in the soil!— Jeremy Corbyn (@jeremycorbyn) April 7, 2019
It prompted much gushing from fellow left-wingers, with one Twitter user even drawing a watercolor image of the two tending to a garden patch. Another beamed “I have never loved anything more than this it’s so CUTE.”

The question is, where does this relationship head next? A sharing of socialist ideas over tea and scones in the English countryside or could it perhaps lead to AOC introducing Corbyn to New York’s best dive bars? We await, with anticipation, for the next instalment of the AOC-Corbyn love-in.
