The Farmer in the Dell

We are excited about having a garden this summer in Hokkaido.  We are renting a two meter by three meter space in a community garden on the edge of town. Ted has already told me this garden is for recreational purposes, not to save money.  Vegetables are relatively cheap in Hokkaido and there are expenses involved in having a garden: seeds and gardening tools, and the rental cost which is 2300 yen for the summer. Even if it costs us money, it will be fun.  These are the seeds we’ve purchased.

So far, our “farm” consists of our balcony.  Ted has planted the some seeds in little trays to get them growing so we can later move them to the ground.

Nothing has popped up yet, but we’ll keep you posted.
