One of my goals was to be able to develop the skill to grow some of the delicious fresh produce that I learned to love while living there, bought fresh and cheap from my neighborhood wet market 菜市场。Lots of these veggies, considered staples in Kunming, are rare exotics or nonexistent here in the U.S. 莴笋 is one fine example. Love to cook it. Love to eat it. 概览 is another. I've found these in a few restaurants in Dallas Chinatown, but not in the small town where I live. Have been enjoying the detailed and intelligent YouTube gardening channel of a Chinese Grandma who seems to be a master of organic gardening. Speaks very clearly.

Language expansion comes naturally. 5 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
