A Saturday With My Vice Principal

A few Saturdays ago, I had the opportunity to help my middle school’s vice principal on his farm. Here are some pictures!

Workin' it

First, he put me to work with the hand-held plower. Definitely beats using a spade.

The Giant and the Beanstalk

Then I went to town clipping some beans from the stalk.

Corn hole?

And helped his wife plant the corn. Legends say that when these little guys are fully grown, they’ll tower over the White Giant.

I don't think I realized exactly how tall I am until I saw this picture

We prepared and ate our fresh lunch straight from the farm!

Mine are on the right.

Meanwhile, my vice principal decided to compare shoe size. Let me know if you have trouble figuring out whose are whose.

And that was my Saturday. Very enjoyable, very delicious. Just another reason why I love living in backcountry Japan.

Update: Tonight I’m taking the night bus to Tokyo, meeting the California family, and together we’re going to China for ten days! Then I’ll be returning stateside to see the Ohio family and friends along the East coast! Then back to Japan for Round 2! See you in August with more blog posts! And more exclamation points!
