My wife and I started gardening in Fukuoka (Japan) in 2003. There was nothing but muddy clayey sloping land. At the beginning we made several structure such as steps and paths, and planted turf, fruit trees, roses, herbs etc.
In 2010, we visited several famous English gardens, including Sissinghurst Castle Garden, Mottisfont Abbey Garden and Hidcote Manor Garden. We were shocked by the glory of those gardens. Since then, we have been trying to make little but glorious gardens by ourselves.
MAKING PALM FRUIT JUICE (ココスヤシのジュースづくり)
In my neighbourhood, I collected fruits of Butiayatay;
a kind of palm which is native to South America.
This palm tree has grown up to 5 meters, and some of its fruits have fallen down
on the ground.
The fruits gave off a strong sweet smell, and I noticed that the fruits had ripened.
