Wallabi's Farm: The English Hototogisu Bakery and Farm Blog

Hello, my name is Sara. In 2005 my husband and I bought an old farmhouse in Okayama, borrowed a few fields and set to building ourselves a pleasant rural life. Now, several years on, we have fields a-plenty, what was until the end of 2012 a wheaty bread bakery and is now prepping to be a gluten-free space, and have incorporated our efforts into the Hototogisu Bakery and Farm. Welcome!

First Summer Veg Harvest of the Season


These first tomatoes are from the cherry tomato plants in the greenhouse. Yay! Hopefully we will have more soon - lots mean semi-dried tomatoes and tomato focaccia and cherry tomato soup and more goodness. 

The view from the front of the bakery: more tomatoes! These are Italian sauce tomatoes, fruiting all at once, rather than gradually throughout the summer, and (we hope) capable of surviving the wet weather to be found outside. Tomatoes in the area are usually kept in green houses or under clear roofs to keep the frequent summer rains from damaging them.

The front field is also planted with corn and bursting forth with volunteer sunflowers and promises to give a very pretty view in a few weeks time.
