Massive, vicious Typhoon Number 6 hits Shikoku

Massive, vicious Typhoon Number 6 made a straight hit at Shikoku on 19th July...
We had just returned on the 18th, after spending a short break at Malaysia... 


Our plants began fluttering in the winds...
Oh oh, I knew we had to do some harvesting or else...
Quickly grabbed some amaranth, red and green...

Some tomatoes, and an ear of a baby corn...
The Malabar spinach, red and green... 
such a handsome looking vegetable...
The green ones are really fleshy and chewy...
Had purchased some Burpee cucumber seeds on our trip to Los Angeles in March...
When we returned on the 18th, the cucumbers were dangling all over the plants...
All in all, we harvested 19 cucumbers, weighing about 5 kilograms...
My missus could not wait to pickle them...
Urmmm, I love pickled cucumbers...

Prior to leaving for Malaysia, had harvested the 'mountain peaches'...
Made fresh juice out of them... 
The blood-red color... 
that is original... absolutely no additives whatsoever...
They tasted sooo fresh and gooood...
Oooh, can't wait for next season to harvest them again...
