In this post, I’ll continue with photos of my little home garden and also introduce some offerings of a good friend, Toyama-san. First, let us say it with flowers!
Rose of Sharon
This is the first Rose of Sharon that has bloomed this year. I love the faint pink and splashes of red in this elegant flower.
Aster and Begonia
The Asters have bloomed next to the Begonias. I read somewhere that one could propagate Aster through root cuttings. I’ll probably try it soon after the flowers end.
I have already propagated Begonia and will present some to friends introducing them to the world of flowers, fruits and vegetables!
I neglected to remove the stubs of Petunias after they faded and found some seeds in pods where the flowers were. I’m going to try raising new plants through these seeds.
In the meanwhile, here are some daily harvests – the fresh tomatoes are delicious!

Now let me introduce my good friend, Toyama-san. He has a large area of land in the same town where I live. He has also started growing vegetables and flowers in earnest – and I’m pleased to introduce some of his offerings here. The photos from here onward are from his field and have been taken by Toyama-san.

Bitter gourd and morning glory
These plants rise up on the net and provide a “green cover.” Keeps the room behind the plants cool in the dry summer.

Thanks, Toyama-san. Hope to receive such lovely photos from you in the future too.
Have a great day, and feel free to comment.
