Hakusai ready to be cropped

 

The most heated HOTTEST Summer has gone, and now we are cropping the last of our products hurriedly – we hope to crop the lettuces before the frost hit them hard.

Now our main products are Hakusai,or Chinese cabbages.

We put 6 hakusais into one cardboard box to make it weigh 15 kilogrammes each.

These are my husband, two Chinese trainee boys, and my son.

Go backwards to when the Hakusais were being planted.

It was two weeks after I sowed the hakusai seeds on the seed plots.

It takes 60 days from sowing to cropping.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Due to the hot weather this summer, the harvest season for our rival districts( such as Ibaragi pref. or Iwate pref. etc.) has been delayed.This causes the prices of vegetables to hold on  relatively high for now.

Good news for us,yes, but the truth is – we are longing for the off season now ! after the hard labor during the unusual HOT Summer.
