lucky enough. from the small tomato sprouts my neighbor gave me
months ago, i was able to harvest 3 small tomatoes. only three!
but i enjoyed wathcing them grow closely. with all these
three, non of them were perfect but it's all right.
this morning, i cut one of them and put it in my mouth.
it was absolutely "taste of summer"
some of you might be tired of seeing my cardiospermum
collection but i am found of thehm each year when i

morning glory, and bitter melon, all three are kind of
symbol of japanese summer. many people admire them
in their own yard these days to promote natural
cooling effect rather than using airconditioner.
i am not sure how much it will help to reduce the use
of airconditioner during so humid and sizzling
time of the year here.
but it's nice to see the green curtain and
at least pretend little cooling effect.
i kind of the like the imperfection
