4 age first day. Silkworm which most silkworms finished ecdysis, and was displayed. As you are on the first floor of new Government building, please come to see.

Silkworms of grass-roots sericulture left to all of you on the weekend. We appreciate your moving to many various places. Please enjoy approximately one month with silkworms.

4 age second day. Silkworms which eat hard when we get new bait.
We gathered small silkworms in corner of breeding container that bait went and went over to small silkworm.

It is in breeding manual (p7) which we distributed in grass-roots sericulture, but, in the case of artificial feed, it is not necessary to give every day. However, we like thing having just finished sending silkworm from refrigerator. When you have time, you divide quantity of manual into several times while seeing state of silkworm, and please give.

Friday, July 7, 2017
4 age fourth day. As for the big silkworm, approximately 4.5cm, small silkworm are approximately 3cm. How long is silkworm at everybody?
In city hall, we clean using exclusive net which sericulture farming family uses. We hang net, and silkworm goes up net in a few minutes. As we can move every net to new place, cleaning becomes easy.
When there is handy net at hand, please try.

5 age fourth day. Silkworm which becomes 5 ages, and eats a lot of bait every day. Big team seems to come to have a slightly big small team.

We changed thing to spread at the bottom of the breeding container from today from newspaper to advertisement.
The reason is because teacher of silkworm gave an advice saying "thing which is hard to absorb moisture of artificial feed is good as for the thing to spread at the bottom of the breeding container".
Silkworm seems to have good advertisement and thermal paper of quality of paper that is hard to absorb water than newspaper to become hard to eat dry artificial feed.
(as breeding does not have problem with newspaper either, we would appreciate your breeding with thing which it is easy to use.)
You have you try everybody in various ways, and please tell if there is recommended thing.

5 age fifth day. Silkworm which grew up to approximately 8cm. Appetite is excellent today. Silkworm of small team is approximately 5cm.
Probably we will begin to make cocoon on the weekend. We assembled mabushio to be able to climb silkworm. Silkworm does pee before making cocoon. We established pet sheet for pee measures.
Tuesday, July 18, 2017
5 age ninth day. Most silkworms have begun to make cocoon during consecutive holidays. We hear sound to vomit thread lightly pleasantly when we peep at state of silkworm.

Silkworm of small team became quite big, but seems to be already one step until we begin to make cocoon. We decided to give mulberry with wish early when we wanted you to be big.
Thursday, July 27, 2017
We did cocoon oyster (taking mabushikara cocoon).
There were some pellicular cocoons that silkworm had run out of energy on the way to prepare cocoon into, but it was said and there were many cocoons and came.

At last nombiriyasannoo silkworm has begun to vomit thread today, too. We pray to be able to make cocoon safely.

Cocoons of grass-roots sericulture gather in city hall one after another, too.
