Food Generation

Standard

After the last batch of my tomatoes, basil and other vegetables, I just cut the stalks and left the pots fallow.  It rained a few days last week, and with no effort on my part, a new generation of life has sprung up, like weeds, but actually food.  In the US and Japan, I often found it very difficult to grow tomatoes from the seeds of the previous generation.  Here, it only takes a little bit of rain.  I’m pleasantly surprised, but worried about possible unpleasant truths about the modification/engineering of American/Japanese crops and seeds.

前回の収獲後、そのまま放置していた「畑」が先週の雨により新しい命を生み出した。日本・アメリカでもこのような畑をやっていて、出来た物の種からまた野菜を作るのはとても難しいことだった。しかし、スリランカでは落ちた実をそのまま放置しただけでまた生えて来る。結果嬉しいがもしかしたら、先進国の物は一回きりで終わるようにいじらてるのでは?との心配も。。。
