This frog spent it's whole day on the zucchini leaf contemplating lunch.Speaking of zucchini and lunch. We had our first cukes (front) and zukes (back) for lunch yesterday (the tomatoes are store bought). I had no male zucchini flowers and so had to harvest them as babies, but they were yummy. Today for the first time I had male and female zucchini flowers! Looking forward to more substantial zucchini in the near future. Pretty soon harvesting them at this size will seem like a good idea. flowers red lettuce The green salad bowl lettuce has a terrible infestation of red aphids raspberries green pepper blueberries
I am originally from Hamden, CT, USA. I have lived in Gifu, Japan since 2000. We moved to this house on June 30, 2007 and started to work on the garden immediately. Our yard was a completely barren sand lot when we moved in. I am currently mostly a SAHM to our three daughters, M (6/2004), L (10/2006), and K (5/2011). I teach English to children two days a week from our detached house.
