TOMATOES & CUCUMBERS (トマトとキュウリ)


In spite of continuing rain and insufficient sunshine, tomatoes and cucumbers are growing and we are harvesting them, not so much but almost every day.  Cucumbers are growing on a arch made of reinforcing rods and tomatoes are under the arch.  We planted two varieties of mini-tomato; oblong red 'Aiko' and sphelical yellow 'Chika'.


(梅雨が長引いて、雨と日照不足ですが、トマトとキュウリは何とか成長して、少しずつですが収穫が継続できています。鉄筋で作ったアーチに沿ってキュウリが成長し、アーチの下からトマトがまっすぐ成長しています。トマトはミニトマトを2種類植えています。細長い赤い実のアイコと黄色でまん丸い実をつける千果です。)

Another typhoon is coming toward us this weekend, and we are afraid the tomatoes and cucumbers might be blown by its strong wind from the front of the potager.


(今週末にもまた台風が接近する予報で、正面から吹いて切る強風でなぎ倒されないかと心配しています。)

The potager was soaked with rain.

  1. That harvest looks like a feast! My tomatoes are a long way off harvesting so I am very envious.

    1. Fortunately, the typhoon had weakened, and we had no damage at all.
