Below, garden entrance from the floodplain side, March 6, 2008. At right rear, rockwork greenhouse under construction. Oats, wheat and garlic are visibly greening out. Behind the gate are regular oats.
Below, Erik's rockwork greenhouse nearing completion, May 25, 2008. Notice the vent at the far left of the rockwork structure (left of the not-yet-installed door), which will be driven by a solar-powered fan running from the rear of the building. Note also the remarkable quality of Erik's rockwork, a trademark of his construction craftsmanship.
