Urban Container Gardening - part two
One of my projects, Urban Container Gardening at the Akiyama Wellness Center is one step closer to happening! The plants have been sprouted and the containers are waiting for the dirt and compost to arrive. I selected a very Japanese theme for the gardens. Shabu Shabu (vegetables that you dip in boiling broth) and Tsukemono (pickling). I also plan to have some cooking classes to tie into the gardens. There is a pickling mash that can last forever. Some our past down from since they develop their own unique flavor. I think it would be fun to sample several families old style "Nuka" recipes.
