Flowers and sprouts of my summer vegetables

Flowers give me hope and prospect for future's good harvests.
Today I found some flowers of my egg-plants, tomatoes and buds of my black chili.






I saw buds of black chili for the first time. I wish those buds could lead me to the joy of a good harvest,,,.



"紫蘇/Shiso or Green perilla (Perilla frutescens var. crispa)", a kind of herbs, have germinated in my soil bed. Shiso is used so often for summer dishes in Japan like a sauce for cold Somen-noodle ( Japanese wheat noodle) as condiment. I hope they will have grown by summer when we can enjoy the Siso-flavored dishes.

Next month you will start to harvest warm veggies I reckon. Interesting bud for the black chili.

I too am seeing the flowers in my plants. I especially love the purple flowers on the eggplants. I really like shiso too!

I love seeing flowers forming. It makes me excited for the hopes of a good harvest! The flowers on the black chili are really interesting. I've never seen anything like it before! I hope you get chilis soon. I can't wait to see what they look like!

Despite holes on the leaves by bugs, my black chillies are growing well.

When I heard you like shiso, I wonder how you cook them?
Do you use shiso for condiment as we do?

>Holly
I'm also looking forward to seeing black chilis flowers.

>Paul and Melanie
Thank you, Paul and Melanie! Well, I also grow the black chili for the first time so I'll have to care them with checking bugs everyday!

I really want your black chillis to do well! I am looking forward to seeing what the mature fruits look like, so I wish you success with the bug-hunting.

As summer is coming, more bugs will be found. I've been checking bugs everyday but no more further holes by bugs have found on my vegetables including my black chili.

>The Sage Butterfly
I also look forward to seeing and cooking black chili...not so hot but very tasty!
