This picture is wheat field in Hokkaido. One of my friends sent this to me the other day. It's beautiful, isn't it? She and her family have a huge farmland. And they have been growing some vegetables and wheat. I think Japanese wheat is very valuable. And I'd like to see the wheat field someday!
I took private lesson for English conversation today. And we learned about Agriculture, and discussed about why people first started farming and how change in human cultural development. It was really interesting subject for me. I want to review about that before my next lesson.
I eat tomato every day. Especially I love mini tomato. I ate them at my break time. These tomatoes have beautiful colors. Red, Yellow, Orange, Zebra stripe purple color. They're colorful and so delicious. They made me happy!
I've been growing soybeans at my small veranda since three years ago. The soybeans are conventional seeds, and these sprouts are the third- generation! I was really happy when I found the sprout. My goal of this year, I do beer party with Edamame green soybeans!
I made Umeboshi yesterday. I'm trying new way. There is no weight on top of the ume to push them down. And after a few days, add the purple shiso leaves in the glass jar. Then, after rainy season, I don't dry them, I put the whole jar outside in the sun about 7 days. I hope it works!
Cherry is seasonal fruit in early summer in Japan. I like cherry, so I eat them often. And, I found these twin cherries when I ate cherries today. Wow, very cute! I don't mind though they're irregular type and seem unsaleable. Besides, they were delicious like the same as others.
I tried making tomato jelly. It was almost good. But I'll practice again and again. By the way, tomato has lycopene as you know. It's from red color and has the effect on high anti-oxidation, so tomato is vegetable that has health benefits.
I got loquats today.
They are very seasonal fruit in Japan.
We can eat them in just early summer.
I love loquats because they are delicious and contain a lot of Carotene.
Carotene will change to Vitamin A in your body, and Vitamin A has the benefit for your health and beauty.
Loquats are wonderful fruit!
