Japanese vegetables

My neighbor gave me more of her hot house produce.

This is called chingensai... a type of Chinese cabbage. My neighbor was out cutting bunches to take to market and I ran into her at just the right point to receive a few bunches myself.

As we stood there chatting I admired some pretty flowers at the edge of her field.

"Look at the interesting colors in this flower! They fade from dark yellow to light yellow!"

"That is shungiku, one of the vegetables that we have been growing and the seeds have fallen by the road and grown wild."

I learn something new everyday!
