The Lasithi Plateau in eastern Crete, Greece, is situated 800 meters above sea level. Despite the high altitude, the water table here is extremely shallow. This plain is covered with fields of grain and plots of vegetables such as potatoes, cabbage, cucumbers, beans and onions, which are irrigated by means of thousands of windmills with white sails.
