June was on fire 🔥 🔥 🔥 

June was hot as hell 👹! We had daily temperatures of more than 30 degrees Celsius and no rain for several weeks. 

This means that I had to water my plants every single day. Also all the Japanese cucumbers 🥒 that I just planted have died beacause of the heat 😭!

Nevertheless, most of the stuff is growing well due to the wonderful weather and I am looking forward to a great harvest in September.

Pumpkins 🎃, tomatoes 🍅, Korean lettuces 🥗, Japanese corn 🌽, Japanese kokabu, and my white grapes, are all in great shape 💪👍!

First harvest


Despite having planted our Japanese cucumbers (きゅうり) in mid-June, today we were able to pick the first two 👍. Also our cherry tomatoes and medium size tomatoes started delivering some nice and healthy ones 🍅🍅🍅! 

Pumpkins are still in a miniature stage, so I really hope that summer continues for a few more weeks. This week will be a sunny one with highs of 30 Celsius ☀️😀.
