Yesterday, we cut down the papaya tree on the backyard. 

Actually, the main shoot have already cut down several months ago.

The side shoots have grown on the top of the tree.

There was 'Kara' bean climbing intensively on this tree.

So lush...
Lots of beans on the top of the tree.

So high, I think it more than 5 meter in height.

But this patch under the tree became shaded and only limited sunshine could penetrate the leaves, so the crop on the raised bed couldn't grow well.
Finally we have to make a chance....
Cut it down...

Prune the bean vine...

And got a bunch of beans.

Today, I'm very happy.

Our farmer were harvesting edamame on their farmland.

Such a shame I can't attend that special event.

Oh... they are really kind.

They sent me a bunch of boiled edamame to our office.
And even more...

When I went home, I found a bunch of fresh edamame on our porch.

Thank you so much...

These healthy snack is so delicious...

So yummy...

These were gift from our neighbors on Sunday. 
After we picked lots of things from their garden.
We shared the load from our gardens.

There were papaya flowers and Moringa leaves.

The papaya flowers were came from male tree.

Looks beautiful.

Here, papaya flowers usually cooked and served as traditional dish.

Beautiful stuff or delicious dish.

The taste is a bit bitter.

We use to stir fry the flower with hot chili and anchovies.

Right now, the flowers are still in my refrigerator.
I will share the dish next...
Thanks GOD
