High on a Hill

Firmly planted on the crest of Beacon Hill, with a refreshing breeze blowing through the springtime mustard blossoms, is the Snoqualmie P-Patch. Seasonally Snoqualmie P-Patch it is a wild, prolific green, almost tropical. In the fall it is an unruly field of carefully selected plants producing seed for next seasons plenty. In the spring and winter the crops huddle close to the ground covering the ground like a blanket. Gardeners from Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, and across the USA work well together in this garden with a view.
