Cantonese: 紫=zi(purple) 茄子=ke-zi(eggplant)

農姐說,她家鄉的人稱茄子為吊菜。
嚴格地說,茄子是果不是菜。

Our lady farmers told me, in their hometown, people call eggplant "diu-gwaa".
Word-for-word, it means "hanging-vegetable".
Technically, eggplant is a fruit, not vegetable. (fb)

建棚架不是供茄子攀緣,而是支撐著株身,果實不觸土地便不易被蟲咬或腐爛,農姐採摘時也方便。

These trellises are not for the eggplants to climb but supporting them to grow upright, keeping the fruits off the ground away from bugs and rot, making it easier for the lady farmers to harvest too. (ml)

隨著酷熱天氣之後再下了連日大雨,菜園的作物開始出問題:三區有幾個茄子出現花皮。
農姐會在天氣轉晴時於一區定植新一批紫茄子接上。

With excessive heat followed by days and days of rain, the produce are starting to have casualties. At zone 03, a few Eggplants have brown scars on their skin.
The lady farmers will transplant a new crop at zone 01 from the nursery when the weather clears up. (rc)

捱過了壞天氣,全園復元得最好的是茄子,唯生長情況仍然比較弱。農姐為紫茄子修剪吹壞了的枝葉,疏通畦面,預防病害。

Having braved the bad weather, the crop recovering best on the entire farm is the eggplants. However, its growth has been stunted. To prevent crop diseases, our Lady Farmer trimmed the damaged foliage off the purple eggplants and she cleaned up the row surface. (kw)

The picture on the left was taken at zone 01 by the end of July, together with all the vegetables on our farm, this crop of purple eggplants transplanted earlier on had experienced the effect of three successive typhoons within two weeks.  Some of the plants were showing stress.  After applying fertiliser, the lady farmer hilled up soil to protect the exposed roots to stimulate plant recovery.

  今年3月,天文台預告有4-6個颱風來襲,讓大家做個準備。
  至今來了5個,共中3個於上月兩星期之內接踵而至,天文台於今日宣報颱風襲港的數目已由4-6個「被提升」至6-9個。
農姐得悉後二話不說,立刻攜竹枝入茄子田搭棚,保護作物免被狂風吹倒。

In March, the Observatory forecasted 4-6 typhoons may come to Hong Kong this year. We were well prepared. Up to now, we saw five typhoons. After three of them hit us within 2 weeks last month, the Observatory "tuned up" the forecast from 4-6 to 6-9 typhoons this morning. The lady farmers promptly built rows of trellises to protect the eggplants from the strong winds. (ml)

按左圖放大,您知道農姐阿蘭獨個兒在畦裡棚中遮影下幹甚麼?
圖中的紫茄子開始著花結果,阿蘭正在用三齒手耙除草,讓茄子有個好環境發展。

You may wonder what was lady farmer ah Laan doing alone in the shade of her umbrella inside the rows of trellises.
Click on the left picture to enlarge it, you will find the eggplants are starting to bloom and set fruits.  Ah Laan was removing the weeds from the soil bed with her three-tooth hand rack, giving the eggplants a better environment to develop. (bt)
