Everyday Meals Veggies from Mom’s Garden July 23, 2018 / by Junko Weekend trip to my parents’ place in Chiba. This is my mother’s vegetable garden. (the font part is my dad’s play yard) She has another one in the back yard. Her gardening is no longer a hobby, I think. Carrots Goya (bitter melon) Pumpkin & cabbage Kiwi fruit Blueberry Water melon I brought back a lot of fresh organic veggies. I think I’m so blessed to have the mom who loves gardening. Junko There are so many Japanese dishes and cultures that are not well known outside of Japan and I’m happy to introduce them to you! If you tested any of our recipes feel free to send us a photo and your comments and we will be happy to publish them, even if it wasn't a complete success! :) Seeking the best balance of being free and living a stable life in this busy city, I enjoy kitchen gardening to deepen my connection with nature. Lately, I enjoy traveling to places I’ve never been and dancing Salsa/Kizomba there. Always a traveler at heart. Freelance web/graphic designer. Coffee & chocolate addict.
