The pole bean, cabbage, lettuce, onions and many other veggies in a well-designed succession pleasing the eye.
Again, a tasteful vegetable combination in which vegetables in ground beds or on trellis alternates with small fruit trees such as citrus or figs and corn fields. The little straw bale comes to add an interesting accent in the wide green mass.
