The parents of a student of mine brought me and Katya a melon in a box. It was a big one like a watermelon.

Katya and I had a half together.


It was very good. We keep the half left to let it more matured.

    Looks yummy…. reminds me we grew some wonderful melons last summer – except they all grew late in the season… so much so, that my wife had already left for Japan when they were ready. Admittedly, I’m not sure they were the sort of melons you would find in a box, but home-grown is always good… the hard work makes them taste so much sweeter! ?:-)

    You find the best melons in Yubari, Hokkaido. They can also be in a box.
    My dad grows all vegetables for him and Mom; they do not buy vegetables. He grows kiwis, too. I was wondering how kiwis grown in Japan taste like, but actually, they are fresh and good.
    Do you grow vegetables, too, Ben?

  3. AdelaideBen says:

    Yes – but mostly during the summer (we’re lazy come winter time)… we tend to grow tomatoes, pumpkin, (rock)melon, strawberries, capsicums, eggplants, lettuce, carrots – and cucumbers. This year we’ll try growing broccoli and maybe some spinach. But we don’t grow that much… we only have a relatively small vegie garden patch. My parents on the other hand grow a huge amount of fruit and veg… and we’re always getting this-and-that from them.

    So you do farming, Ben. It should give a good influence on T-kun. Katya and I are too lazy to be farmers, but Katya grows flowers.
    My father grows many vegetables. He not only gives them to us but sells them in front of the house. He is very proud of growing plants without using any pesticide.
