Growing our own vegetables in Japan!

2017年6月7日

It has always been one of my dreams to grow my own vegetables! 

Recently I decided I should try to make this dream come true. My partner and I went to the garden centre and bought many packets of seeds. We planted all the seeds in March and kept them in a warm greenhouse until the seeds were strong enough to be replanted into the plot of land.

We are growing many types of vegetable; lettuce, tomatoes, basil, spinach, pumpkin, watermelon, capsicum, eggplant, cucumber and edamame!

I am really excited about growing edamame as this is one of my favourite Japanese foods!

Recently the weather has got warmer and the tomatoes are looking a bit worse for wear. I am hope that they will be ok and survive!

The lettuce is ready to eat now and we eat it for lunch and dinner everyday! We actually overplanted so we are selling the extra lettuce each day to the locals in the area. Everyone has mentioned that it tastes delicious!

Plot of land - area of land

Worse for wear - not feeling good

Overplanted - planted too much/

If you have any questions about the vocabulary or any advice on how to save the tomatoes please comment below!
