First Crop of Shiso (Perilla) This Season/今年初めてのシソの収穫

Japanese Food

I have two shiso (perilla or beefsteak plant) plants in a single planter box in my yard. Two is enough for my family of four.
庭の一つのプランターにシソを2本植えています。4人家族には2本で十分です。

This morning, I harvested some leaves for the first time this season.
今朝、葉を少し、今年初めて収穫しました。

They were shredded and went into my natto!
刻んで、納豆に入れました!

Sorry for natto haters!
納豆が嫌いな人には、ごめんなさい!
I want to use shiso when I have temaki zushi (hand-rolled sushi) in the near future.
近じか、手巻き寿司を食べる時にシソを使いたいと思います。
