I remember when I was a little kid, we gave my grandpa Leo a license plate frame that said, "Grandpa has green thumbs." My grandpa was an amazing gardener to say the least. Well, my mother got the gardening gene from her father and she has passed it down to me. I can't wait to one day have my own house and a garden that I can tend. In Koryama, I'm frequently struck with jealousy when I see some of the "gardens" people have next to their houses. I use the word "garden" loosely because half of them are like small farms. Check out this garden in the middle of town:
I'm pretty sure my grandfather would have loved to have a garden like this!
