Again, such a pretty pink color. I put out mitsuba seeds about 8 days ago and finally they are sprouting in my vegetable garden. Mitsuba is very expensive in California, but I love the taste so much!

My two ume trees, two different varieties, have some fruits on them now. Can't wait. Last year I made umeshu, but this year I like to try umeboshi.

Lovely photos Obachan. You have Spring in Kochi...we've been having snow in Seattle metro area! Haru wa doko iku no? March is suppose to come in like a lion and go out like a lamb. Not this year.

looks wonderful!

Actually, rosemary, mint and sweet marjoram are looking good, too. And now it’s time to sow other plants.

Me, too. :)

Sounds like you are enjoying many kinds of home-grown fruit and herbs. Good luck with your umeboshi!

Yeah, I’m looking forward to seeing your dad’s veggies. He is such a talented gardener!

Is it still snowing over there? The weather is certainly a bit strange here, too. It has been abnormally warm. I hope we are not going to have a terribly hot summer this year.

Hope they stay that way… But usually the heat and humidity ruin them by the end of the tsuyu season… :(

Your garden looks great! It inspires me to grow a few things myself this year. Actually, I'm thinking about letting my 3-year-old daughter have her own container to grow strawberries. I have a feeling they'll disapear before they're even ripe! ;)

Oh, I'm sure she will love growing strawberries. I used to grow some strawberries when I was a kid, (...well, actually it was my mom who was taking care of them :P) and I remember how hard it was to wait until they were ripe. I compulsively checked on them a few times a day every day, and I couldn't understand why the rest of my family wouldn't share my enthusiasm. Hahaha...
