2016-08-29 04:26   Growing Plants

Y (Kuma's owner)

I love growing plants. I always buy seeds from internet shops. There are lots of varieties of flowers and vegetables, especially the vegetables that I would like to buy are Japanese vegetables, and there are more varieties on the internet than in the local shops.

I think most Japanese like to eat leafy vegetables and so do I. My favorite leafy vegetable is Tokyo Bekana. I love their light green colour. The colour is similar to Australian Yellow Leaf Lettuce.

Japanese Leafy Vegetable Tokyo Bekana

Winter is almost over here and it's time to sow seeds. Most Japanese leafy vegetables are kind of Brassicas and lettuce is from the family of Compositae. Inconveniently, insects love Brassicas rather than Compositae.

The season in which insects become active is coming. Somebody said that planting Brassicas and Compositae alternatively is effective. I think it's worth a try.

It's warm and fine weather today. All right, let's sow tomatoes!
