They say the meal is delicious if there are a variety of colors
They say the scene is beautiful if there are many colors
They say life is wonderful if it is full of colors
Why is my life just only white
When I am dying at the end
Why wasn't I white any more
9月中種下的白蘿卜種子。。 11月葉子還不是很茂盛。。 今天被雪蓋着，才想起忘了收成。。 Steve 拔起一棵。。 叫我趕快拿相機來。。 我以為什麽大事。。 看他拿給我的白蘿卜。。 我們笑到不行。。
Plant the daikon seeds on the mid of September.. The leaves still had not grown very tall by November.. They are covered by snow today, and we just wondered how they are.. Steve went out to pick one.. He yelled at me to come and take a picture.. I thought, what is happening? He hands me this daikon.. We both laugh out loud..
A vegetarian friend started growing vegetables in her back yard last year. She shared her discomfort about killing some worms while she was digging the garden. It was killing.
I replied to her in rational thought that we are killing everyday, like when boiling a pot of water, many germs are killed that we can't see. That's not a big deal as long as we are not doing it intentionally.
I am not a vegetarian yet, but I cook vegetarian food mostly since I must cook.
Last week, another friend gave me some vegetables from her garden. It took several hours to wash the leaves, because I needed to look all around on every leaf. I felt discomfort while washing them, so I started chanting for those tiny insects, may they get that transfer of merit...
The place without chemicals is heaven to the worms and insects.
A leaf is the life of insect.
How many insects in a meal of mine?
When boiling water and cooking meals, even though I can't see those tiny creatures, but in knowledge, I am killing.
Can I really be vegetarian?
I was thinking to wait a little longer before harvesting sweet potato leaves for a dish from my garden again, but there was a frost a few nights ago. They're all gone.
The greens that survived are Chinese radishes.
Same with the basil. They were gone too. The greens are mint.
My friend shared some vegetables from her garden.
Almost every leaf has holes. That tells these are real organic. My garden's vegetable leaves are the same.
It took me two hours to wash them, you know why?
After washing two times, I found these worm eggs stuck on when I cut the leaves.
That's why it took me so long. I need to clean the front and back of every leaf thoroughly.
