Not now.  now I am living in the world of reinforced concrete and there are no soil to see at all. And the only soil in the city are planted grass , trees, and all kinds of ornamental plants.

  But when I was a child, I lived a house with a big yard in a village. I liked many kinds of vegetables.  Indeed I planted some vegetables in front of the house during that time, like kidney bean, onion, cucumber, tomato,fragrant-flowered garlic , carota,.

   My favorite vegetables are cucumber and kidney bean, not only because I liked eating them, but the process of their growing were very funny. The seeds went down, then watered them, waiting for them to come up from the soil.  I was so excited every time I saw them broke the soil to sprout.  Buds were tender green. I loved the feeling of budding.

  And then, watering ,fertilizing, weeding , all the process were happy, especially looking at them growing up little and little every day.

  I need to build a shelf with bamboo poles after they came up several days in order to they could crawl along the shelf to grow continually. They would bloom, bear fruit on the shelf at last.

  Yes, the vegetables which planted by myself were really delicious than any others which bought out. I don’t know why I always feel that the past vegetables were more better delicious than now. even I couldn’t find the childhood taste anymore.
