エゴマの蜜源 Wild sesame perilla nectar

In less than four months, Following very wet rainy season (duh) the stone terraces have turned a brilliant green. At first I had no idea what this weed was and it turns out it’s a very common herb/spice used in Korean cuisine and known as wild sesame. It’s suppose to flower at the end of summer around September hopefully and is a good nectar source so I been told, I just hope the honey doesn’t smell like the leaves :-)

たった4ヶ月でこんだけ雑草が入ってしまいました。草刈りはしないとダメと思ったが雑草の種類を調べたらエゴマ【荏胡麻】で分かりました。

エゴマは9月に花を咲きますので蜜源として残すことにした。
