GEN SUZUKI

家で過ごす時間が増えたので、子供達と一緒に庭を掘り起こし、ミミズを殺さないように気をつけながら、ゴロゴロ出てくる石を取り除き、小さな畑をつくりました。
本を片手に、腐葉土や米糠や蕎麦殻、くん炭などを発酵させて有機肥料をつくり、土壌酸度計を睨みながら土づくりをしています。

料理をする時間も増えました。
メースやフェネグリークシードなど知らなかったカレーのスパイスもたくさん買い足しました。

土と植物と料理。身近なものの奥深さを学んでいます。

ー 鈴木 元


Since I’m spending more time at home, I dug my garden, carefully took out the rocks without harming the worms and created a small farm.
With a book in my hand and staring at a soil acidity scale, we are making organic fertilizer by fermenting leaf mold, rice bran, buckwheat chaff and charcoal.

I started to cook more often too.I even bought curry spices that I didn’t know such as mace and fenugreek seeds.

Soil, plants and cooking. I am learning from things close by.
