Mackerel was boiled with soy sauce, sugar and sake. Green onions and ginger were added to it. We are trying to have sea grown but not artificially reared fish. The former is rich with omega 3 unsaturated fatty acid which is beneficial to avoid arteriosclerosis. Even though we should have been more conscious of this long before. Maybe, better than nothing. Pretty good taste. It is a kind of typical family dish in Japan.
The dish below is salad featuring broccoli harvested in the garden farm. Some of them are already flowering. I have planted 3 of broccoli in the garden farm.
There is another japanese plum tree fully blooming at the eastern end of the property. In total, we have 3 of japanese plum trees. Two of them, including this one, have been planted by my father while the newest one by myself. Japanese plum requires partner tree to bear fruits in early summer. To enhance bearing fruits, a small one has been planted in between the other old two. The photo below is a close up view of the new one.
It has been a peaceful day. On the other hand, the news tells the number of infected people has increased abruptly after the Olympic games was postponed. The governor of Tokyo even warned that we might had been in the beginning of overshoot. I still suspect they have limited the tests in order to show less infected people than real. Politics is inclined to utilize such a crisis to get more power. Wondering if people could notice that or not.
I should not take it granted to have such a peaceful day. Peaceful and tranquil life is being threatened by things going on.
