That's very impression scenery for me.
It was rainy day yesterday. So air is very clear.

The both autumn colors stand out against the clear blue sky.

A goal of next year 2009 (2009年の目標)

This is today's harvest, it takes more one month to berry from the flower.

The yield of strawberry was 15.8kg in this year.
It was less than one third of the goal 50kg.

I will try to do the same yield again on the next year.

So I changed my mind the bed was for strawberry instead of potatoes.

You can see only strawberries at the field.
But 50kg, it must be big goal.
