十一月廿五 天晴 11-18℃ 濕度47% 審核編碼: 18Ak 01.02
昨天和義工在棚內起畦時,見到耕土板結,怪不得訂戶說我們的葉菜種得比根菜好。
自從三年前地產商強佔了半個菜園的耕種面積去發展物業,場主郭良湘因有高就,放輕了菜園的工作,也放輕了護養耕土的工作。
十多年前開辦菜園時,為了種到優質有機蔬菜,我們指導場主用不同的天然方法去護養耕土(按圖連結);今日要改善土質,長期方案是督促場主選擇合適的耕地種植綠肥,短期方案是購買認證公司認可的土壤改善物料加入耕地。
場主告知,農友沿用的堆肥已不獲認證公司認可,市面上也沒有此等物料,他亦不會向有存貨的農友借用。
那就讓我去探一探農友吧。

While the volunteers and I were making rows for planting soil in the polytunnel yesterday, we found the soil was quite compact.  No wonder our customers told me that the quality of our leafy veggies is a lot better than the roots and tubers.
About three years ago, half of the arable land of Farm II was taken by the property development people and our farm manager Kwok Leung Heung has landed a better job. He began taking the farm work lightly and spending less efforts in conservation.
When we started Local Produce one and a half decade ago, we showed him various kinds of natural means to cultivate the soil to produce high-quality organic veggies. Click on the photos above to see some of the soil conservation practices over the years. 
There are two means to convert hardpan to arable soil.  The long-term plan is to urge the farm manager to grow green manure like he used to do, the short-term plan is to add soil amendments that are approved by the organic certification body to improve soil quality.
The farm manager said that the compost organic farmers used to buy is no longer accepted as organic by the certification body, there is no organic compost in the market and he is not going to borrow any from farmers who have stock on hand.
Well, if that's the case, I'll see if I can borrow some from my friends. (ac)

Nothing in the world is too difficult for someone with a determined heart and a strong belief to achieve.
The World Wide Fund for Nature was very generous to share with our farm 200kg of certified organic compost from their Panda House Organic Garden.  After collecting a lot of energy from the winter sun, we set to work.

首先拍一張美女運剷圖留念,然後起勢剷呀剷,未幾已把200公斤堆肥稱好,用聚乙稀袋包妥,搬下石級到停車處,裝上貸車。

After I captured this memorable moment for the three charming ladies, we started shoveling away.  Shovel, shovel, shovel, we soon finished gathering, weighting and nicely packing 200kg of compost into PE bags, carrying them down the steps to the carpark and loading onto the van.

阿燕在那邊廂用被颱風吹脫的舊棚膜裁成地膜大小,舖在畦面候勤。義工隊抵達二園,把一包一包的堆肥運送到畦面放好。

Back at Farm II, ah Jin took a piece of typhoon-torn polytunnel cover and cut it into the size of a mulching ground sheet to cover the row. We soon arrived the farm, transferring the load bag by bag to the polytunnel and placed them orderly onto the row to store.

我們領取了阿燕剛才為我們收割的有機蔬菜後,便乘運堆肥來菜園的貨車離開菜園;阿燕用另一張地膜把堆肥包蓋好備用。

We picked up our veggies harvested by Ah Jin a short time ago, got in the van that took us and the compost here all the way from WWF and left the farm. In the meantime, Ah Jin used another ground sheet to cover the compost for later use. (ac)

農姐阿燕鄭重提示,液肥氣味非常濃烈,施完液肥全身會帶著一陣肥田料味,我們乘火車回家時可能會臭死同廂搭客…
先哲有云:不入虎穴,焉得虎子?即管一試無妨。
擷起液肥桶蓋時,一陣襲人的酸溲氣味直撲面來,令人不得不退避幾步。
細野小姐神勇,一馬當先,提起灌溉花洒,依阿燕指示調配好液肥後,帶領眾人入棚輪流為牛蒡淋肥水;棚內歡笑聲此起彼落,大家完全投入這出奇地難聞的田間運作。

Lady farmer ah Jin solemnly warned us again and again that the liquid fertiliser will be so stinky, the smell will stay with us for a while, we might scare people off the train when we return home.
Well, as the old saying goes, nothing ventured, nothing gained. We decided to give it a go.
When we lifted the lid off the fertiliser barrel, the odor was so offensive that it forced us to back off.
Courageous Ayako san stepped forward, picked up the watering can and started mixing the liquid fertilisers according to ah Jin's instruction. We follow her into the polytunnel and took turns to side-dress the burdocks, laughing all the way, enjoying this very unique smelly experience to the fullest. (ac)

Two tons of organic compost was delivered to our farm yesterday.  It was discharged from the truck onto the higher ground at zone 00 for temporary storage. Lady farmer ah Jin ensured proper measures were in place to protect the compost from wind and rain. She will add them to the soil on the farm as soil amendment in due course. (ac)

Thanks for a great experience today. It was so exciting to use the stinky liquid fertilizer! However, I am really happy to have these organic veggies as my staple food. Thanks again.

知道他無力配合,惟有召集義工團隊幫忙。

To be honest, I was a bit tired yesterday, but everyone who are taking part in the volunteer are always welcoming and friendly.
It makes me super fine! Haha
Also I feel comfortable with plenty of nature and lovely weather when I could escape the central of Hong Kong.
I've noticed that there are many beautiful places and I really appreciate the opportunity to join the volunteer work.
Thank you :)

Thanks Amy for organizing the volunteer activity yesterday.
I had a wonderful experience visiting Island House and the farm.
The weather was pleasant, it was not too cold, not too hot to pack and carry the bags of compost.
I felt so refreshed with the clean air and the beautiful environment.
Looking forward to working at the farm next time!

It was fun because everything we did was very fresh for me to experience, even though we collected 200kg of compose haha, I didn't think it was tiring job.
Glad that the weather was very fine too.
Thanks for making my mind open wider!
