South Pole Greenhouse

The one thing I really miss at South Pole are plants. For the most part, this somewhat desolate place is flat, white and without color. Many days there is not even a horizon on which to settle your eyes, for the gray sky simply blends into snow. 

But thankfully we have a small hydroponic greenhouse. A heavenly little place to poke around. The greenhouse supplies the station with a few freshies, mostly in the form of salad ingredients but a few flowers are grown there too... It's my favorite place on station.
