Sweet Leaf

According to the International Brotherhood of Hermits we’re to eat twelve to eighteen pounds of green, leafy vegetables every week. Easily achieved in the temperate days of spring, summer and fall.
In the frigid winter months this becomes a challenge, but despite single-digit temperatures, a bountiful yield is possible with the help of The Lord, a south-facing raised bed and the miracle of modern plexiglass.

This arrangement provides enough succulent kale to keep my mind sharp and my stools regular.
