Shinsoba, 2010's new soba crop

Under normal circumstance, we're able to get the earliest soba new crop in the late August from Hokkaido, which is the biggest produce center and locates the northern most part of Japan.

It must be lucky, I've got this year's "Shinsoba; new crop" today.
The grains are rather small and the skin color is just a little bit dull.
No surprise, it's been fighting with vicious weed and finally won and survive.

I like it, the new soba year goes up now anyhow.
