A while back, on the recommendations of Drew and Brian, I read One Straw Revolution. I have long had an interest in growing things, and doing so in an organic, sustainable manner. I found this link in the sidebar of a blog I was reading, and am posting it here, for safekeeping and 'cuz I knew a few of you would be interested.
This year I have decided to give up on the cukes and cherry tomatoes. I didn't really have room for either, and rather than do a half-assed job on them I am going to concentrate on herbs this year. I have planted some basil, mint, parsely and rosemary. I also got some shiso from a friend and it has been growing like crazy. The humidity in the Kanto is really good for plants and I expect to get a good yield again this year. I still have another bed that I can plant so I'll head down to the Daiku Senta to see what they have for mid-early summer planting.
