  我於上世紀80年代從久司道夫先生的著作中認識牛蒡,雖說全球溫帶皆有
  種植,當年找遍全香港都找不到這食材的鮮品。
  得悉笹木小姐已經找到日本牛蒡種子,不久之後便能用跳甲先生設計的方
  法在菜園種植,非常感恩。

I learned about the benefits of burdock root (ゴボウ) from Mr. Michio Kushi's book in the 1980's.  Although burdock is native to the temperate regions, I couldn't find fresh burdock in Hong Kong back then. 
I am grateful that Satoe san has found Japanese burdock seeds.  With Mr Flea Beetle's planting method, we are able to have this wonderful vegetable grown on our farm soon. (ac)

上月交了牛蒡種子給農姐阿燕,她報告一月氣溫太低,種子不願萌芽,衹有15株牛蒡苗能在寒冷天氣中成長。

The burdock seeds were handed to lady farmer ah Jin last month.  She reported that it was so cold in January that the seeds hardly sprouted.  Only 15 seedlings survived the chill. (rc)

農姐阿燕知會,牛蒡已練苗,可以移植。
笹木小姐用日語向義工們講解針法,四對巧手不久便縫製了15個麻包培植袋。

Lady farmer ah Jin said the burdock seedlings were hardened off and ready for transplanting.  Satoe san explained the sewing procedures in detail to the volunteers.  Eight skillful hands soon sewed up 15 burlap bags as planting bags.

用三枝竹固定位置,套上培植袋,放入培植土,細心地把幼苗從苗格移植到培植袋中,澆水,完工,交給農姐照顧。

With 3 bamboo sticks firmly planted into the soil, we put the bags around the sticks, filled in planting mix, gently transferred the seedlings from the seed tray to the bags and water them well.
Lady farmer ah Jin will take care of them until our next visit. (ac)

這塊畦有點狹窄,不宜種植葉菜,正好用培植袋來種植第二輪牛蒡。
量度好每袋距離,依農姐阿燕指示,義工們使出混身解數,剛柔並濟,整整齊齊地定植了一行袋種牛蒡。

This strip of land is too narrow for growing leafy veggies. However, it is very suitable for growing the second crop of burdock-in-bag.  We set the spacing for each growing bag, following ah Jin's instructions, with a lot of muscle power and gentle touches, a row of burdocks was neatly transplanted.

有說牛蒡由下種至收割需時三個月,第一輪由定植至今已有兩個多月(第03帖),加上培苗的廿多天,是時候面對現實。
牛蒡根深可餘半米,用培植袋栽種,收割就省功夫,衹須搖鬆泥土,便能一手將整株牛蒡抽出來。
因為這是首次種植,大家都不肯定這株牛蒡的長相對不對勁,我請笹木小姐遞照片給種子店たねの森,徵詢意見和指引。

I was told that It takes three months to grow burdock from seeds.  It had been more than two months since we transplanted the first crop (third post), adding three weeks of growing seedlings in seed trays, it was time to face the moment of truth. 
Burdock roots may grow more than half a meter deep into the ground.  Having them grown in bags makes harvest easy and efficient.  We just shook the bag to loosen the soil, gave it a pull and I had this bunch of burdock roots in my hand. 
Since this is the first time for everybody, we have no idea if the roots are of the right size and shape.  I asked Satoe san to show the photos of the roots to the seed company Tanenomori to seek further advice and guidance. (ac)

受到壞天氣影響,義工們把收割第一輪牛蒡(第03帖)的日期重訂於本周五,今輪收成有13株,原株預售$38/200克,先訂先得,群組訂戶優先。第二輪牛蒡(第06帖)預計於8月尾至9月頭收成。

Due to bad weather, the volunteers have rescheduled to harvest the first crop of burdock (post 03) on this Friday. 13 burdocks are available.  They will be sold as whole roots.  Pre-order for $38/200grams for our Group Base members on a first-come-first-served basis.  The second crop (post 06) is scheduled to harvest in late August to early September.

Thank you for the pictures!
I was very impressed with the farm. The vegetables looked well too. Amazed with the farming lady Jinnie? Jeanie? She is keeping the farm very well! Thank you Amy for giving me the chance to come.
Looking forward to next week!
