Barren land in summer - weeds cut to prep for planting
I am in Tokyo for three weeks attending a film festival. So I miised the sowing. Sakai just e-mailed me today and said that the weather in Tehachapi took a drastic turn and winter has arrived. There is snow on the mountain peaks and temperatures at night are in the 40s. Ana, our dog is shivering. It has been raining there for two days straight. I like the rainy part but the low temperatures are discouraging. My idea to plant three kinds of buckwheat has now been thwarted to one. But that's okay. This is a test. Sakai asked me which of the three types of seeds to plant. I asked for Tartan. Let's hope that the moist ground will do good to the seeds. I just need 75 days of warmer weather for the buckwheat to mature. I am praying from Tokyo.
