This time...from above

While putting up a Christmas star in the birch tree, I decided to capitalize on my altitude and snap this shot of the veggie garden. In the center island we have Swiss chard, kale, salad greens, a few very miserable peas, and carrots. On the right side where the bare patch is, I harvested about 45 pounds of potatoes a month prior - it was a very good season for potatoes. Next to that are the Brussels sprouts and Japanese cabbage. In recent years I've become more and more interested in winter vegetable gardening. It's a lost art that our European ancestors were masters at, and I think it will go a long way toward mitigating the dreariness of winter.

This is probably the coolest thing I've ever built:
