Summer vegetables
 So I have been back in Japan for just over a week.  I am back to teaching, my children are back to school and day care and we are enjoying the routines of a daily schedule. Our summer in the United States was busy and full of fun, especially for my children who played, played, played every day.

Before I left my countryside hometown, I took a photo of my favorite vegetable stand.  Just about a 5 minute ride away from my parents' home there is a roadside vegetable stand run by an Amish family (more on the Amish people later). Their vegetables are home grown and picked fresh every morning.  They are cheap and delicious.  We often buy corn here and eat it right off the cob.  Other vegetables include onions, green and red peppers, zucchini, yellow squash, green beans, eggplant, cucumbers, all the joys of summer.

I had to go grocery shopping yesterday (Sunday) and I got all depressed knowing that I had to go to the local grocery store, that to be honest, is not so fun for me.  There is not much selection and it is very expensive.  As I strolled through the produce section I got so depressed to see the little tiny zucchini that wasn't much bigger than a dill pickle, cost 198 yen (2 dollars).  Please take a look at this photo of what I got used to this summer at the roadside vegetable stand.

And even watermelon and canteloupes.  They are so sweet and delicious!

Nothing beats homegrown, fresh vegetables and fruit!
