Edamame or green soybeans

This healthy snack is an excellent appetizer and perfect side dish with beer or Sake.

AUG 5:Mejiro (white circle), a little bird that looks like a bush warbler with greenish-brown color, laid eggs on the tree in my little yard and hatched the eggs. Then the chick emerged from the egg. The baby chicks are opening mouths waiting to be fed. They are so cute!! We are getting our eyes on them every day behind the curtain hoping that they will grow safely.
