It was a beautiful day today, and I was able to do some field work at Ten-Sho-An… Koji san and Micchan were already working on this and that.

Straw mulch and bird netting
Straw mulch and bird netting were put on the strawberry plants. Both were found in the warehouse.
flowering pea plants have fine poles and nets
The flowering pea plants also had fine poles and nets…another job done by Koji san.
pruning of the yuzu trees
I continued with the pruning of the yuzu trees…again with Koji san…and the result was a much cleaner yuzu tree.
Kita Akari potatoes had sprouted
And… Half of the Kita Akari potatoes had sprouted.

I’m grateful that spring seems to be coming even to our small, toy-like farm. There are pleasures other than what money can buy. It also gives me a sense of security in terms of preparing for the economic crisis that will probably come in the future, although it is a small one. I am really thankful for that.
