Super Organic Lettuce 有機到不能再有機的蔬菜

The host family has this huge space on the rooftop for flowers, laundry, brewing etc. It is also a wonderful place for a cup of tea and reading in the late afternoon with breezes.

In addition to the flowers, ama-la also plants some lettuce! Hence I’ve been having these truly organic lettuce as part of my diet here.

I don’t think they would add any fertilizer or pesticide. These greens simply grow naturally under sunshine and rain falls. Everything seems so effortless here. In many ways I feel Sikkim is indeed a sacred land.

They are always picked right before the meal time. With a little peppers and vinegar made out of sugar cane juice, I can literally finish a full plate within a couple of minutes. My mom used to say that I eat vegetable like a cow. This is one of the few things that I have to agree with her.

The other dishes today are my favorite fern with cheese and radish soup. Can’t ask for more in life!


Love these prayer banners in the wind. Mesmerizing to watch them moving and the sky.
