Vegetable gardening in Japan... We grow about 40 to 50 types of vegetables, and about 20 types of fruits in our potager-garden... This photo-blog represents an attempt to document the thrills and challenges of a 'student-gardener'... For me, it is 'heavenly' enough just to be able to connect with the soil and nature, and if we get to eat the fruits of our labor, it is but an added bonus...
We got to harvest only two fruits
This one weighed about half a kilo
Not big by any pumpkin standards
Sliced into halves, the texture unfolds
As the name implies, the flesh resembles spaghetti
or noodles if you like
In Korea, was onced served 'pumpkin tea'
And why not try making our own?
Not as sweet as that of the 'normal' pumpkin
Missus made a vinaigrette concoction to go with it
Sprinkled with a bit of sesame
Ummm...the pumpkin by itself is quite tasteless
But with the vinaigrette dressing, tasty enough to warrant a second planting season...
