‘I’ve been living in a nameless mountain for a month now.
My name is Sano Shohei.
I’m 25 years old, single.
I’m not looking for a lover or a marriage partner right now.
Plant growth here is amazing when the weather warms up.
I wish I had a fraction of their zeal.
Now it’s time to deal with those invasive weeds.
‘Get the electric mower out and keep trimming the weeds around the house.’

…There was no way to get rid of it no matter how much I mowed.
Although, It’s not entirely useless since the chickens eat these weeds.

If left untreated, it was said that insects would feast on them; therefore, I attempted to replicate a chemical-free pesticide I had seen an idol make on a certain television show.

I was curious about how many weeks had gone by since he was born when I bought him.
When I asked about this while shopping in the village, I was told that most of the stalls would have sold them within a week of hatching.
Though they were a week old then, they are now just over five weeks old.

People say that young chickens would be ready to ship to slaughter in about seven weeks, so the only ones sold at fairs and other events are males that couldn’t be sold.
An old man in the village even offered to help me if I would eventually kill (slaughter) them, but I politely declined.
