Freshies


Even though we haven't seen the sun since mid-April,
we still get fresh vegetables about once a week. A small
greenhouse about the size of a one car garage resides in
town and although it doesn't supply near enough for 241
people, it does give us an occasional taste. The main items
are ususally lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and
sometimes some small flowers, all grown hydroponically
(without dirt). The greenhouse is also a great place to go
relax after work or on an off day and soak up the artificial
"sun", enjoy the warmth in a comfy chair. If you put on your
headphones to block out the sounds of the Antarctic wind,
and listen to a recording of birds, you almost feel like you're
in a botanical garden...almost.
