Bonsai cooking

For those bonsai people who live in out of Asia, I'll give you a recipe with easy stuff.

bonsaicooking1
You will need, clockwise from top: a piece of cream cheese, chocolate cream(I used dried seaweed instead), sausage, a slice of bread, a small cutting knife, peanut butter, broccoli and butter.

bonsaicooking2
First, spread chocolate cream on the bread to make a jiita.

bonsaicooking3
Second, make a pot with cutting sausage.

bonsaicooking4
Finaly, spread peanut butter and cream cheese to make a trunk, jin and syari by using a toothpick,then put broccoli as foliage.

This time I used a photo above as a sample. It's really fun! Create your own ideal tree...on a bread.


 

Bonsai Bento

While I'd been in hibernation, I made some bonsai bento for my husband.

bonben1
This is my first attempt. I like netaku part personally. It's made from sio konbu(salted kelp). The trunk part is made from sweetend miso, and the foliage is broccoli.

bonben2
This is bunjin. I think this was misfire. The trunk was too straight.

bonben3
Another misfire. It's momiji...I suppose so.

bonben4
The worst one was this Ume. Looks like petsed flower. You'll never know this as ume till I tell you so. Literally, I made this from ume paste.

bonben5

bonben6
My favorite one. Sakura(cherry blossoms) is a sliced ham.

bonben8
Ginko. made from takuan(pickled raddish).

Oops, last photo is not bonsai as you can see. I made it for a joke.
OK, lunch's ready. Itadaki masu! (bon-saippetit!)

The youngest bonsai apprentice in the world...probably

I hear many bonsai enthusiasts often say "I should have started bonsai from young age".

Glad my son has started already. Now he is into watering.There's a bonsai proverb in Japanese, "Mizuyari san-nenn" which means "Takes 3 years to master watering". He will get it beofre 5!

Seeding in Nov. 2012

This time I sowed Himesyara(Stewartia monadelpha), Akinire(Ulmus parvifolia) and Soyogo(Ilex pedunculosa).

Firstly, himesyara has woken up then Akinire. Soyogo has been sleeping.
