grandpa’s garden

mogumogu_052917.jpgMy grandpa has a nice garden in the back of the house where he experiments growing all kinds of fruits and vegetables. When I was little, I wasn’t so interested but as I became an adult, I started to realize the importance of fruit and vegetables. So whenever I visit, it’s exciting to see what can be eaten this time. Also, my grandpa is kind of impatient, so he’s pulling out plants and planting something new pretty often too.

This time, there were strawberries, spinach, and snow peas. Even a few biwa and this weird red thing called gumi (pretty but tasted bad). And the tomatoes and green plums were just starting to ripen. This year there was also zucchini in the summer and the avocado tree has been steadily growing.

Unfortunately, I don’t have a green thumb… my foodie partner and I have killed almost all of our plants… but I hope someday I can grow a small garden like my grandpa.


私のおじいちゃんは家の裏庭で色々な果物と野菜を育てています。小さい頃は全然興味なかったけど、大人になると果物と野菜の重大さがわかってきますね。だから、遊びに行く時、今度は何が実ってるのかが楽しみです。おじいちゃんもちょっと飽きっぽいので、すぐ植物を植えかえています。

今回はイチゴ、ほうれん草と、スノーピースだったかな。あと、びわと変な赤いグミというものを食べてみた。グミの色は綺麗だけど味はまずい。そしてトマトと青梅も熟し始める頃だった。夏はズッキーニも出てきて、アボカドの木もまだ頑張っています。

残念ながら、私は園芸の才能は全くない…彼氏とほとんどの植物が枯れてしまってる…でもいつかおじいちゃんみたいに小さい庭園を作れるといいな。
