A panoramic view of the backyard food forest in the making. It's difficult to see but there is about 15 trees in the foreground, but it's winter and they are dormant now. The contour swale is visible in the foreground. This is the primary swale and is highest up in the landscape. The yard slopes down toward the right. On the far right, three hugel beds are visible. They aren't a meter high, they are more like knee high. That is as much material as we could gather up out of the yard.

In the middle the arbor is visible. Kiwi vines are growing here, though their leaves have fallen since it is December. To the right of that is the pond. It is a kidney shaped pond that holds about 500 gallons.
