Pumpkin

pumpkin ( CaboCha/南瓜 )
学名:Cucurbita。日本カボチャは Cucurbita moschata、 あとはCucurbita pepo, Cucurbita maxima, Cucurbita mixta とありますが、専門でもなんでもないので詳しくはないです^^;
↑7/21に撮影したもの

私のアパート・マネージャーがブロック塀の小さな片隅で園芸を楽しんでる。見ての通り1ブロックよりも大きいのですが、黄色の花が咲き終えた頃にあっちこっちに沢山ぶら下がっていて、よくもまあ~少しの土だけで何の手入れもなしにこれだけも大きくなるものなのか”と驚きです

それぞれが腰掛にもなる大きさです。カリフォルニアの恵まれた気候がどれもこれも大きくしてるのでしょうか、これは何の品種なんでしょうね。日本と同じものだったりして。。。
*こちらにはいろんな種類のカボチャが売られてますが形や色が違えば味も歯ごたえも違ってきます。まあ胃の中に入れば私にとっては特に「コレが美味しい!」とは分からないし鈍感、それに調理やメニューによって違ってくるのでしょう。人好きずきですね
で私は食よりも(食い気はまったくなし)鑑賞用にカボチャを楽しんでます。なかでもこのデカデカのオレンジカボチャは大好き!
下の写真は去年のハロウィ~ン時期に撮ったものでHPでも何枚かを公開してたものですが、今回その中から3枚をココにて記載しときます。(現在は他のカボチャ写真は載せてません)
左の大きい2つのペア・カボチャはSolvang Centerの道端に飾ってあったのをパチリ!と、あとのみかんのような山積みの2つの写真はAVILA VALLEY BARNでSan Luis Obispoに行った時に撮ったものです。 去年ある日本にいる人から「これ食べられるの?」って聞かれたのでここでも念のためにここでも言っておきますが、もちろん食べれます~
みかんじゃ~ないよ、カボチャだよ~ん
もう これらのカボチャを今年の秋からは目にする機会もないでしょうし、少し寂しいかな~ 私のカボチャ思い出でした。

アメリカのかぼちゃの味は?やはり「おおあじ」なのでしょうか?! かぼちゃは漢字で南の瓜と書くぐらいなので、やはりカリフォルニアの気候にピッタリ、っということなのでしょうかね?...そういえばかぼちゃをくりぬいて顔のオバケ?に見立てて・・・そんなお祭りがありましたよね?なんでしたっけ?イースターエッグじゃなくて。。。。ハロウイン???うぅ~わかんだい~。。。

あぁ~そうですか、やはりハロウインですね!あのお祭り?はもともとはどんなことから始まったのですか?いわゆる「収穫祭」なの?

ハロウィーンの意味は以前に聞いたことがありましたが何だったのでしょうね~興味がないので忘れました。
ネットで調べればわかるのでしょうが、なんせ日本人であるわけなので、、、でもそのくせハロウィーン時期は楽しませてもらってます。

【調査報告書】
ハロウインとは?
万聖節(11月1日-日本ではお盆のようなものをイメージしてもらえば大丈夫だと思います。
過去に亡くなった人が、この日にはよみがえると考えられています)の前夜祭(10月31日)に行われます。古代ケルトが起源で、秋の収穫を祝い悪霊を追い出す祭り。
アメリカでは、カボチャをくり抜き、目鼻口をつけた提灯を飾り、夜には怪物などに仮装した子供たちが「Trick or treat (いたずらかお菓子か)」と近所を回り菓子を貰ったりする。(All hallow's Eveともいう )

【調査報告書】ありがとう。
今度は忘れることなくここに記念に残って嬉しいです。
Trick or treatは何度も耳にして知ってましたが、子供にとってここでのtreatはお菓子を意味させてアメリカらしいというか、私も便乗してもらったことありますが、日本では出来ませんが変わった格好をするのが好きなんです。
ちなみにtreatは「おごる」とか「ごちそうする」とかによく使われてる言葉です。

I'll treat someday! if I have cash on me..... at that time.
However, we won't know till the time comes. Anyway, Let me take this occasion to thank you.

あなたへの言葉でした。。。

===============
"BREAKING NEWS"
===============

-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Global Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth before they can
be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number of other benefits.
Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and the lack of oils and sap found in the wood
make it resistant to forest fire, ensuring higher returns on investments.

the wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140 Million
with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With anticipated
growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153 Million in revenues.
As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree continues to grow around the world
EGTY believes additional multi-million dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of 250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business owners in New Zealand,
Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular and profitable fast growing infant tree plants.
Inquiries from the governments of Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.
This stock will not be a Secret for long. Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right
Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!


GO EGTY!
