What's the key factor of success in living in a countryside is 'cutting the grass in your garden'.
When you live in the city, even if your garden is covered with weeds, nobody cares it. But in countryside, please remember that just one house with overgrown weeds will spoil the entire scenery of the community.
Moms are professional of pulling weeds.
After they go by, there is not a single grass behind.
Few days before the autumn festival, we rooted out weeds along the street where portable shrines would go thorough.
These are necessaries of country life.
We hate cold winter but feel a little bit relieved with getting freed from the pressure of weeds.
