にわ My Japanese garden

This year I decided to start my own Japanese garden so I wouldn’t have to go all the way to the Asian market to get some of my favorite produce. I ordered the seeds from Kitazawa Seed company based in California. Here’s the progress of my plants.

This is shiso. I believe it’s part of the mint family.

This is mitsuba. It reminds a little bit of parsley.

This is azuki beans. No beans yet but they are growing nicely. I can’t wait to make anmitsu!

I also planted burdock and Japanese turnips. The turnip leaves look good, I just hope the root turns out. The burdock on the other hand might not turn out so well. I’ll see in late August when it’s time to harvest!
