  My husband planted two seedlings of  Bitter melon at the foot of two trees.
They grew to have the fruits of Bitter melon.
It is rich in vitamin C, momordicin and  so on.
And it tastes bitter as it contains  momordicin, but it
 is very good for our stomach.
Anyway it is very good for our health , especially in hot summer.

Do you know what this plant is ?
We eat the long root of this plant.
It's burdock.
These burdock in my vegetable field haven't been pulled out.
The leaves began to wither and I see both seeds and flowers.
It was the first time I saw the flowers.
By the way, they don't seem to eat them in the West while
the Japanese eat this vegetable.

Mouse on !

  My friend gave me this plant a few years ago and it began to bloom some flowers at the top of the plant. 
The flowers seem not to be so beautiful .
By the way, I don't know the name of this plant.

 I happened to see the same plant as this on a blog and knew the name of this plant.
This plant may be a kind of Aloe whose name is ' a night-less entertainment district' ; 'fu-ya-jyo'. (7/6)

Half of this year have passed and today is the beginning of the latter half of the year.

They bloom vigorously in the strong sun.
