Racing against the Insects
For this Diary in Entry in KOREAN click HERE
Recently, the seeds planted in Autumn are sprouting and growing one after another in the farm field of my house, including radish, carrots, turnip, chrysanthemums, champignons, Chinese cabbage, spinach, and still more lively mountain wasabi.
Cruciferous vegetables, especially Chinese cabbage, are popular with caterpillars. So I am constantly competing against caterpillars in who will eat the Chinese cabbage first. Although it is said, the vegetables are still growing steadily.
I am looking forward to future growth. Other vegetables are growing well without being eaten by insects.
Same to the radish, it is growing freely without being eaten. I have both Mino Early Radish and Shinshuji Radish. The Mino Early Radish has scratchy leaves, while Shinshuji Radish has smooth leaves.
Though the spinach is eaten by grasshoppers a little bit, I get to eat the thinning delicious spinach too.
