May 3, 2004: Fruitful plants
|Today is a mid day of "consecutive holidays." Weather forecast says we will have another rainfall in the night. It is good to clean weeds in the garden on a cloudy day like today. I found by chance some red berries under the bush.
Wowo! It's strawberry!
|Two years ago, I got some young plant of the berry in Ogi town and planted them in the kitchen garden. They have grown up in the bush vividly.|
|It is so good to have fruitful plants. I again looked around my garden and found another plant here.
This is lemon tree planted in commemoration of our son's .marriage.
|The tree holds flowers every year and bear large yellow lemons. The number of the fruit is still low, but I expect the fruit every year.|
|This is Kabosu tree planted in commemoration of my husband retire in the same year as the marriage. It also bear green Kabosu fruit regularly.|
Beside the Kabosu tree is .Tutankhamen Pea.
Many peas are growing as usual.
|The persimmon tree is shining in green.|
|The tree is still small, but it already holds some white flowers. I hope I can enjoy Kaki fruits in this fall.|
|Ume plant is in the center of the garden. The tree is still young.|
|It is this Ume tree that blooms in the coldness of early spring.Many white flowers will grow into lovely fruit in summer.|
|In the west part of the garden is a grape tree. We planted it last year in a long-range huge dream.
The height of the tree is still just 50 centimeters or so. When can I "drink" wine?
|Beside the grape is small blackberry plant. I got it from one of my close friends. The height of the tree is mere 20 centimeters, though. When can I make "jam" from it?
It is good to see fruitful trees, anyway.
