Vegetables

Look at the price! A head of cabbages cost 499 yen. Usually it won't cost more than 200yen. No kidding!Owing to the damages the recent typhoon No.23 and No.22 brought about on the fields here and there in the country, the prices of various kinds of vegetables are skyhigh rocketing.No wonder we won't see lettuce in salada at many restaurants.It's the season we enjoy the warm dishes like stew and potaufeu at dinner in the chilly evening. Isn't it disappointing to find no stew or no rolled cabbage from our family dinner menu? I hope that the prices turn to be normal before long.

Here in the U.S. citrus (oranges and grapefruit especially) are very expensive. The state of Florida was hit with 4 hurricanes this summer and destroyed much of the crop. Same thing on the other side of the world, huh? :-)

I love your profile picture!! Did you make it?
