Use rice bra in the garden
Rice gran is useful of garden, therefore I throw it into there to nourish its soil. In the garden covered fallen leaves in winter, bran acts to break down fallen leaves by benefited fermentation. So I sprinkle rice bran in the garden every year. It is useful for fields, fruit trees and other trees.
Rice bran is a good food for microorganisms, so if rice bran and fallen leaves are mixed, it gets hot due to fermentation.
Rice bran joy (Nukayorokobi) in Japanese means premature joy. The meaning comes from the fact that the bran is very fine. On the contrary, rice bran is very grateful to me.
