summer

IMG_6944 For the past week or so, we've had high temps mixed with humidity.

A bit early, but now that it is June, I guess it is par for the course.

Have been seeing summer veggies in the markets...this corn from Nagasaki was really sweet!

I also got some okra and vine-ripened cherry tomatoes from a tiny vegetable shop in Ikeda.

I am looking forward to eating peaches and more watermelon...

What are you looking forward to eating this summer?

Mangoes! Sweet, juicy, ripe white pirie mangoes from our backyard tree.

I am still waiting for the high temps to kick in but it's nice to finally see a bit more growth on the tomato plants. At night time though, we still wear long sleeves and socks!
