My Buckwheat in Full BloomIt was my very first time growing buckwheat and I didn't know what to expect at all. So I was so surprised when they started blooming so quickly right after a few true leaves came out. Maybe something was wrong? Maybe they were suffering from malnutrition or something? But no, it was just the way it should be.
BTW, for some reason, I didn't take very many food photos this month. Actually these three photos below were the only food photos I found in the "photos 2017Oct" folder. I guess my mind was preoccupied with other things.
Anyway, these food photos were from our visit to a community cafe in a remote town. There community people started a cafe at a closed school as a local revitalization project. We visited to learn from them so that we can do something similar in our hometown. The food was pretty good.
Batter-fried Sweet Potatoes
Homemade Okura and Cucumber Pickles
October was local religious festival season. In our hometown, we have this very unique custom of taking a portable shrine into the ocean as a ritual.
