For vegetable cultivation during my first year, we mainly planted Azuki beans. I taught the students how to cultivate them, we kept a cultivation record, and wrote out the cultivation methods in Mongolian to make a book. We made Zenzai with the Azuki beans we planted but it was too sweet and therefore not so popular.

During the second year, we planted watermelon, corn, eggplant, and kabocha squash. I made some improvements in the soil, furrowed, transplanted, and asked the students to take care of the plants while I was gone during my summer vacation. I would visit the grounds once a month to check on the growing conditions, keep a record, and write out the cultivation methods in Japanese and Mongolian to make a book. We were luckily able to sell the vegetables we planted to the general public without any trouble.
