I (Kok Leung Heung) will leave the Organic Garden project and all farming works with effect from 1 June 2016 due to family financial problem and the need to look after my parents.  I must thank all the partners who have given me guidance and supports, the lady farmers who have been assisting me and all the customers who have been so generous and supportive in the past years.  My appreciation to All. 
Please continue supporting Local Produce. (yl)

第一次接觸春菊這種蔬菜,是初入行時,在一位農友山上的農場見到,後來知道本地農夫都叫細葉茼蒿。
近年在街市出現好多皇帝菜,雖然都是同一種蔬菜,但我依然喜歡用春菊這個名稱,令我想起當初入行的人和事。

I still recall the first time I encountered this special vegetable was during a visit to a friend’s farm in the hills. At that time, I was still a junior in the field. Later, I learned that local farmers refer this special vegetable as “Small Leaf Garland Chrysanthemum”. In recent years, this special vegetable has become popular and is commonly known as “Emperor's Vegetable”. Although it is the same vegetable, I still like to refer it as “Spring Chrysanthemum”, as it reminds me of the sweet memories in the past when I first entered the field. (rl)

The lady farmers transfered the seedlings from the nursery bed to the open field,  making it more convenience for them to clear the weeds and apply fertiliser. It also provided more room for the chrysanthemum greens to develop, hoping to achieve higher crop output. (sl)

農夫姐姐報告,油麥菜葉有白點。

The lady farmers reported that there were white spots on the Indian lettuce leaves.  It is a fungus that attacks host plants.  Although the Organic Standard allows us to apply sulfur products to the leaves, we prefer good sanitation practices.  All infected leaves were cleared and remove from the farm. Old leaves were trimmed to provide good air movement around plants. We then keep the lettuces well fertilised and watered.  They will stay strong in this mild and dry weather condition and survive this fungal attack. (rc)

Amy's Blog: Mr Flea Beetle was occupied with some other events and hence could not attend the Hong Kong Cloud Forum 2016 organised by the Hong Kong Productivity Council.  He asked me to attend the 9 to 5 eight-hour session and report to you all on this blog.
I was a bit puzzle at first.  The only thing I could do was to listen patiently all 11 modules presented by the leaders from the IT sector.  Yet, I have gained much from the occasion.  On reviewing the operation of Local Produce,  I discovered that we have been using the Cloud technology and concepts all along.
Due to limited resources available, Local Produce has built up our database using free portal services and email accounts to store all information including farming need assessment, crop plans, field operations, accounting records, road shows and exhibition displays, customer group management.  Parties concerned can store and archive the necessary information in or from these databases.  We must thank the service provider SINA providing this free Blog and enabling us to disseminate and update our daily activities and events to you since 2005.
The most grateful thing is that the free services have been continued updating following the development of the technology.  This leaves computer illiterate like us no choice but to follow and learn new skills. (yl)

The lady farmers propagated the seedlings and transplanted them in zone 05.  They would pull the vines up every few weeks to make sure that the vines would not get into contact with the soil causing new roots to grow.  The main tubers will then grow healthily thus resulting in best harvest. (rl)

Amys blog: It was due to start in 30 minutes, the voluntary workers were busy setting up the venue, the residents of Braemar Hill Mansions were already coming in for the talk.
While taking their seats, they threw in questions related to arrangements for ordering veggies like method of payment, the whereabout of the farm, types of veggies available and the possibility of getting their order delivered to them sooner, etc..
They even completed the registration forms and handed back to me before the talk began.
The talk began, late comers also raised similar questions before they took a seat.
During the talk, technical questions, such as why did the EU organic label is not on slide of the list of international organic labels, was raised.
30 minutes after the talk, warm questions, such as could I take a few registration forms for my neighbours who were unable to attend the talk today.
This is a knowledgeable, studious, helpful and friendly community.
The number of questions raised had made a record, yet nobody wanted to know the price of the veggie. (yl)

Today celebrates the 10th anniversary of Local Produce being awarded organic certification from the Hong Kong Organic Resources Centre (HKORC).
The recognition we have gained is definitely the contribution from people we have encountered from different walks of life.  I am truly grateful for all the valuable advice, support, resources, knowledge-sharing from officers of various government departments, my customers and partners. They have been giving great support in my life of organic farming. There is no room for personal pride.
In the coming future, I will endeavour to improve my farming and management skills, to maintain the goodwill of our farm and grow many more quality organic vegetables for all of you.
Our volunteers and helpers will continue to liaise and cooperate with different social organisations to encourage the growth of organic communities and promote organic living through seminars and exhibitions.

I copied the above diagram form the Consumer Council webpage.
The Council reported that almost half of 127 samples of vegetables they bought in Hong Kong were found to have residue of pesticide or heavy metal.
Out of 75 samples that "claimed" to be organic, 28 were found to contain pesticide residue and 12 were found to contain heavy metals.
Although there is no law to regulate organic vegetables sold in Hong Kong at present, there are ways to tell if the vegetables you are buying are  "claimed" to be organic or truly organically grown. 
For the past three years, Local Produce has been conducting monthly talks on this subject at the Mei Foo Community Center.  Come join us on April 24.  Call ah Z at 25220013 to reserve a seat. (rc)

"Before the election, I wanted you to understand that you are not voting for Chu Hoi Dick, but for every Hong Kong people who wants to provide for and help himself. I asked you to follow my lead.
I now call upon the people of Hong Kong, I call upon the villagers in the New Territories, we shall no longer yield to the wicked one. We must stand out to find a new way for Hong Kong's future." (fb)

I was planning to do the sowing after Autumnal Equinox in about three weeks. Yet, in considering that this Autumn is not too hot, I sowed the green Chinese cabbage last month. The seedlings are growing satisfactorily. (yl)

我趁百德有機社群成立一周年,向笹木小姐建議辦一次聚會,請她再次和我拍檔,當英日翻譯,向旅港日本人講解本地有機行業的情況,再加試食環節,介紹本地高營有機蔬菜紅莧。
笹木小姐欣然答應。
與會的新知舊雨很用心了解真假有機菜的分辨法門,她們表示很少吃紅莧菜,沒想過只是簡簡單單的加薑煲水已這麼好味。
再次感謝笹木小姐的支持和何潔新小姐主理試食環節。

Some wild amaranth varieties grow to over one and a half metre tall, even taller than me if there is no competition. The lady farmers pick the tall ones, boil them to make a tea and drink it, a regular practice to dispel the summer heat and wetness in their body. (fb)

沙葛看起來像芋頭,給人高澱粉質的感覺;其實一個沙葛有九成是水份,膳食纖維含量高,吃起來像蘋果,是這菜譜的好食材。()

Jicama gives the impression of being very starchy like yam, it actually contains 90% of water, high in dietary fiber and has a faint apple resemblance.
A perfect addition to this recipe. (bt)
