Miscellaneous September Photos
  This single shot of our woodshed and the forest show that on September 20th our leaves were pretty much all gone. Just a couple of days later they were totally gone.

  On September 26th we harvested a bunch of peppermint from our single mint plant. This shows how much we harvested, and this was about one-half of the entire plant. The second shot shows one of the two Siberian Larch (Larix sibirica) trees we have growing in our yard. On September 27th it was just beginning to change to yellow, and then a mere two days later, it was totally yellow.

  The first two shots in this row show mushrooms (unknown species) and vegetables which we bought at Farmers Market for our supper that evening. The third shot shows the Udon Noodle soup that Kazuya created with these vegetables. It was delicious.

The center shot is Lee's Farm, they are the ones we liked to purchase our vegetables from when they had them available. We bought the above mushrooms and vegetables from these folks. The third shot shows the lady who owns "MyAlaskanPassage.com".

  We grew a single Perilla or Shiso plant this summer. This is a spice/herb which is popular in both Japan and Korea for use as a topping on rice, for rolling around rice and meats and so on. This shot was taken in our sink as we were washing it before putting it in the food dryer.

  We grew 18 kale plants this year. We harvested six at a time and dried them in our food dryer. The first shot here shows the food dryer filled with the leaves of six kale plants. The second and third shots show how much dried and crushed kale this resulted in.

  A friend went down to Valdez, Alaska for salmon fishing and brought us this Silver Salmon roe. Kazuya processed it using three different methods. These jars show two of the methods.

  Here is how we ate some of the above Silver Salmon roe. The first shot shows that Kazuya served us some which was processed using all three of his methods, so that we could compare it. The second shot shows one kind with ground Daikon radish. This was a very enjoyable dinner for us.

  For Farmers Market Kazuya made these "Kitten" Dinner Rolls. One selling point was their cuteness and another selling point was the fact that they contained about 10% by weight of the Locally Grown Sweet Mama Squash which is shown in the first photo. They were really delicious.
