It's official! You can see my garden from outer space!





Here's a pic of the lakes I live on, the blue dot is my cabin.

Geez! It's getting so you don't have to go out of the house to monitor your garden anymore Although this technology may be useful in finding out the thief who stole my peaches this year Cool pics though

I use trail cameras around the garden and have caught a few relatives taking more than there fair share. I may spring for a cellular trail cam ( Live Photos), they are starting to get affordable.

I love satellite maps! So much fun to play around with and explore.

Yeah! Google maps are awesome. I used them a couple years ago, looking for a back way in to my friend's mushroom patch when she was away for the year... Trees do interfere with the visibility of those woods roads but it was interesting to follow what we could see. Ended up exploring a lot of new terrain.
