新一輪白蘿蔔在十月份於一園一區種植,現時情況穩定,未見有黃斑葉片出現,菜園會用下列的方法檢查白蘿蔔有無黑腐病情況:
遇上溫暖潮濕的天氣,黑腐病菌容易浸入蘿蔔葉片,如見到有蘿蔔葉出現黃斑並向葉脈伸延枯萎,可能是黑腐病病發,先清除這些葉片,再觀察其它葉片有無發病,如情況無改善,整株蘿蔔葉片都出現黃斑,到時要清除這株白蘿蔔,並切開檢查有無黑腐病。
有黑腐病或老身的白蘿蔔都有機會空心,清洗時空心蘿蔔在水中較輕較易浮起,見到浮起的白蘿蔔就要特別小心檢查。
白蘿蔔頭端最早露出泥面容易受到蟲害破壞造成傷口,遇上溫暖潮濕天氣黑腐病透過蟲口入侵白蘿蔔內部,檢查時要特別注意這個位置有無發黑現象。
有黑腐病的白蘿蔔尾部會受病菌感染,有爛根腐壞情況,可留意根部尾端有無退色變壞情況。

消費者委員會聲稱,有機小食也含有大量的糖和脂
  肪,並擬了這問題:有機食品是否更健康一些?
  答案肯定是的。
首先,由有機資源中心認證的本地農產品都是100%有機,這些農產品的糖和脂肪含量應與一般農產品大致相同吧,但那種新鮮的味道是無可比擬的,是因本地有機農產品是在同一天收割和出售的。
有機小吃的主要成分必須符合有機標準的要求,其餘成分可能不是食材或者有機加工物料列表上的東西。
現代人的飲食,有基因改造的,有化學合成的,也有加工精製的;有機食品相比之下更健康,更安全,更具持續性和對環境好。

The Consumer Council revealed that organic snacks also contain a lot of sugar and fat. And posted this question: Is organic food healthier?
The answer is YES.
First of all, all HKORC certified local produce are 100% organic. They probably have the same sugar and fat contents as the conventional ones but they taste a lot better.  It is because they are sold on the day they are freshly picked.  The flavour and freshness is beyond comparison.
For organic snacks, most of the ingredients are from sources that must meet the requirements of the organic standards.  The remaining ingredients may not be foods or processed with substances on an organic material list.
Organic foods are healthier, saver, more sustainable and earth-friendly than genetically engineered, chemical-intensive, highly processed foods that make up the bulk of modern people's diet.
Everybody has a little sweet tooth. Buy organic. Please. (fb)

When everybody was talking about Typhoon Mangkhut, a newly developed tropical cyclone is moving towards Hong Kong from Taiwan.  If it is upgraded to a tropical storm, it will be named Typhoon Barijat. (tk)

The above is the wechat dialogue between lady farmer ah Jin at Farm II and me earlier in the afternoon just before she and lady farmer ah Lan narrowly escaped the catastrophic flash flood.
With traces of worry in her voice, Ah Jin reported that the farm was flooded with water and our farm hut was flooded too.  The flooding water was half a polytunnel high.  There will be no veggies for delivery tomorrow.
I was very worried about the safety of the lady farmers, so I hauled all my work and replied her wechat, asking ah Jin to leave the farm and find a place to stay.
Soon, Ah Jin responded by saying the two of them had left the farm and succeeded in taking a taxi to a relative house where they could take shelter.  However, all their items of clothing and belongings were soaking wet.
I sent a voice message to her again asking her to take good care of themselves and buy some new clothes to keep warm. I waited utill she gave me a positive reply before I continued with my own work. (ac)

 七月十九 暴雨 24-30℃ 濕度93% 審核編碼: 18H9 02
農姐阿燕在逃離二園之前,用微信遞了這幾張暴洪淹沒菜園的圖片給我。
愈來愈多耕地改劃為棕地供露天貨倉用途和供地產發展的「鄉村式發展地帶」,這些耕地被數以噸計的石屎填平, 再沒有樹木或壤土去留住或調節雨水, 亦沒有政府工程去排走雨水。
中間的圖片可清晰見到,區內雨水就這樣被引流到菜園南面的小溪去。

Just before she left Farm II, ah Jin sent me these photos showing the onset of the flash flood occurrence.
As more and more arable lands were converted into brownfields for open-air storage purpose and Village Type Development Zones for real estate development, tons of concrete were dump on the land.  There is no vegetation or soil to retain or regulate rainwater flows and there are no civil works for discharging rainwater either.  As shown in the photo in the middle, all runoff was channeled into the brook on the south side of Farm II.

  下了四天豪雨,小溪水漲,壤土地亦被雨水浸至飽和狀態。
  中午過後,豪雨(黃色範圍)又再在新界東狂瀉,未幾已西移向石崗,
  這正正是二號菜園所在。
  小溪於五時廿分滿溢,暴洪數秒間把二園田間所有作物沒頂。

It has been raining heavily for 4 days.  The brook was swollen and the fields were saturated with rainwater.  The heavy rain (the yellow patches) started again in the eastern part of the new territories in the afternoon then quickly pushed westward to Shek Kong where Farm II is located. 
The brook overflowed around 17:20 and a flash flood started ripping through Farm II, all crops on the farm were underwater in just seconds. (fb)

暴洪來得快退得快。 與露地相比,大棚內的土壤流失量甚少。洪水痕之下的葉片上覆蓋著一層薄薄的泥塵,開動灌溉噴頭沖一沖一便洗乾淨。
茄子、通菜、小冬瓜和番薯葉已恢復生機。其他作物的表現卻不太好。

The flood came and went quite rapidly.  The amount of soil loss inside the polytunnels was minimal when compared with those in the open fields.  The leaves under the flood mark were covered with a thin layer of mud which can be easily washed away by turning on the irrigation sprinklers. 
The eggplants, water spinaches, mini wax gourds and sweet potato leaves are coming back to life strongly.  The others are doing not so well. (fb)ABSD 18 暴洪 | Flash Flood | 鉄砲水 18 暴洪 | Flash Flood | 鉄砲水

The water spinaches and eggplants were showing signs of disease in the aftermath of the flood.  The lady farmers had cultivated between the crops, applied some fertiliser and pruned the leaves so that the plants may regrow and produce a new crop. (rc)

  機菜園和義工活動,專程來訪,並慷慨地與我們分享了他對有機農業的心得。
以下是他考察菜園後的見解和建議。

Microbiologist Akira Yasutake san is from Japan.  He learnt about our organic farm and PGS program from Sasaki san's blog.  He traveled all the way to Hong Kong to visit us and generously shared his knowledge on organic farming with us.
Here are his views and comments.

18 學者@二園 Scholars@Farm
  訪問第一印象は、よく整備されている畑だと感じます。此れだけの
  広さの圃場を、数名で行っている事に驚愕させられました。
  我對這菜園的第一個印象是打理得宜,尤其當我得悉整個菜園只由一兩位農姐打理時,實在令我感到難以置信。

18 學者@二園 Scholars@Farm
  日本でもそうですが、近年気象変化が激しいですので、畝の作り方
  は、幅1m前後で、畝の高さは30cm高くして・・水の流れを十分 に
  作られた方が良いかと思います。
香港跟日本一樣受到近年天氣轉變的影響;我建議畦寬應為1米、畦高增加至30厘米,以利疏水。

18 學者@二園 Scholars@Farm
  茄子の圃場でも最初は畝を高くされていたと思いますが、段々と低
 くなってきます・・この場合は、土寄せの作業を行うといいかと思
  います。
這畦茄子(的壤土)高度合適,唯在生長過程中,壤土會漸漸下降,最好是為作物培土。

18 學者@二園 Scholars@Farm
  牛蒡栽培実験は、非常に良い事だと思いますので、此れが上手く行
  っている現状から、このハウスを牛蒡専用のハウスと位置づけ~
   ~盛土をして、牛蒡栽培されてみてください~~畝の高さは50cm前後です。
這樣試種牛蒡是非常棒的事情。觀乎目前進展順利的情況,可以將這大棚編作牛蒡試種專區;堆平土地,將畦高增至50厘米左右,繼續栽種牛蒡。

18 學者@二園 Scholars@Farm
  落花生の栽培も、他の栽培もそうですが~~密植が激しいように感
  じます!・・大きくなり成長すると、風通しが悪くなり、カビが発
  生し病気の元になりますので~~収穫時の植物の成長を考えて~~ある程度余裕の感覚が必要です!
從花生及其他農作物的耕種看得出,菜園習慣密集式的耕種。
然而當農作物日漸長大,農作物之間會變得不通風,使農作物易生黴菌,繼而導致病害。
必須考慮到作物的成長、收成時的尺寸,預留某程度上的空間讓作物生長。

18 學者@二園 Scholars@Farm
  落花生もそうですが、野菜の収穫時期については、其々に自分で食
  べて・・収穫時期をつかんでいってください!この落花生は~~10
  日間前に収穫できたはずです。
花生及其他作物一樣,若想把握(它們的)最佳採收時間,一定要親身試食。
這些花生應該早於10天前就要採收。

18 學者@二園 Scholars@Farm
  圃場全体としての乾燥ですが・・非常のコンパクトに整備されてい
  ると思います!・・雑草との闘い~~大変だと感じますよ!
  整體來說,這菜園非常簡潔,整理有條;不過除草向來都是頗辛苦的工作啊!

18 學者@二園 Scholars@Farm
  この圃場に関しても、密植えを感じますので~~一度実験的に数本
  程度~~間隔を広げて栽培してみてください!
  我覺得這個菜園將農作物種得太密;可試試用數行農作物作試驗,將農作物分隔闊一點來栽種!

18 學者@二園 Scholars@Farm
  今回、圃場を快く見学させていただき感謝です!
  香港でまさかこのような、市民団体レベルで此れだけの圃場を管
  理・栽培されている事に驚きました!
食の安全・安心は世界レベルで進んでいってます!
残念ながら、日本では、悪しき団体の影響で、広範囲での食の安全は~~正直先進国では最低のラインかと?
是非これからも香港の人達に、この様な形で野菜栽培が出来ると言う事を広められてください!感謝!
謝謝您們今次讓我這麼快可以探訪菜園。
在香港居然有民間團體可以有系統地管理好(有機)菜園及栽種農作物,實在令我驚訝。
而且在食物安全性上更是根據世界標準來耕種和處理!
可惜的是,我們在日本受着一些不懷好意的財團影響;老實説,我們這個所謂先進國家,在很多食物的安全性上,卻只能達致世界的最低標準而已!
希望您們今後繼續努力,讓更多香港人知道這菜園能夠以這種優良方法去栽種出美味又健康的菜蔬啊! 謝謝!

我謹代表菜會感謝安武昭先生的分享;同時衷心感謝笹木小姐當我們的翻譯。
