Small vegetable garden

We found that we had a chance to do vegetable garden at city's garden place, so we applied it.
And we were lucky to be able to do vegetable garden.
This time, 4 vacant places are provided and 4 family including us applied this, so all members can have vegetable garden.
Our garden place is about 6m long and 3.5m wide, but this is enough space for us.

Before plowing (24 April)

After plowing (30 April, today)

For us, it was hard to plow it. We spend two day for plowing and yesterday, we bought vegetable seedlings (eggplant, tomato, watermelon) and seed of japanese radish and it cost about 80 yen(=1$) for one seedling so total cost was about 700-800 yen. And we bought powder of limestone for nutrition (at above picture, we can see white powder which is powder of limestone)

And it might be fun for me and wife and especially our son !

Other family did like this (below). We need much time to have like this.

Cherry Blossom season

From 11 march,I was very busy. But recently I had a time to relax, so we did the picnic near my house.
Now is the time for cherry blossom and felt relax.

Recently due to earthquake, luxury seemed to be bad thing, but in such times, feeling relax and enjoying nature is important.
