  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)

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 skilful 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 watered 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)

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.

就在第二輪牛蒡開始復元的時候,誰也沒想過居然有暴洪淹至,氾濫沖走了所有壤土,麻布種植袋,竹子和一些牛蒡。
大棚的棚身阻止不了洪水進入,但有助於減少隨之而來的衝力,在棚內種植的第三輪牛蒡因而無損;然而,有幾株卻被農場經理郭良湘撞倒了。

Just when the second crop of burdocks had started to regain some of its strength, came the flash flood, something we never even thought of, taking away all the soil, burlap bags, bamboos, and some of the plants. 
The wall of the polytunnel could not stop the water from coming in but helped to reduce the force that came with it.  The third crop was saved. 
However, farm manager Kok Leung Sheung bumped off a few of them when he moved into the rows. (ac)

洪水過後15天,颱風百里嘉襲港,對農場影響不大(左圖)。4天後,超級颱風山竹接踵而來,毫不留情地吹毀了所有大棚的棚膜(中圖),然而所有牛蒡都奇蹟地在暴風雨中倖存,種植袋也保持完整,惡劣天氣可能會窒礙了牛蒡生長。
跳甲先生說,由於土壤肥沃,溫度夠暖,若果牛蒡根部已固定,就會康復並繼續生長。我們於是著農場經理不要將其拆除,並請農組多加照顧。

15 Days after the flood, typhoon Barijat hit Hong Kong.  It did not do much harm to the farm (left pic), 4 Days later, super typhoon Mangkhut showed no mercy.  It torn up all the polytunnel covers (second pic).  Miraculously, the planting bags stayed intact and the burdocks survived the storms.  However, bad weather conditions might stunt the growth of the plants. 
Mr Flea Beetle said since the soil is fertile and the temperature is still quite warm, once the burdock roots are set, it will recuperate and continue to grow.  So we stopped the farm manager from removing them and asked the lady farmers to take good care of them. (ac)

笹木小姐邀請了三位非常趣緻兼充滿活力的小生力軍來田收割最後一輪牛蒡,他們帶了家裡的大人來幫忙;小生力軍的任務是留心聽取農姐阿燕的指引,然後指導大人做收割工作。
他們收割時,發現牛蒡根已長到壤土深處,他們的工具不能鬆開和翻起根部周圍的壤土;阿燕見狀,隨手拿起鐵鍬加入挖掘。
今次收割非常成功,感謝大家的熱心支持。

Satoe san invited three very pretty and vibrant volunteers to our farm to harvest the last crop of burdock.  They brought the grown-ups in their family with them to help out.  The volunteers' job was to listen very carefully to lady farmer ah Jin's instructions and in turn instructed the grown-ups to do the harvesting. 
They soon found that the burdock roots had grown deep into the ground, they did not have the right tools to loosen and lift the soil around the roots.  Ah Jin promptly picked up her shovel and joined in. 
The harvest was very successful.  Thank you all for your enthusiastic support. (ac)ABSD

I think it was lucky to have some root veggies in the farm during the disaster, because only them survived well. So I suggest the farm to plant some more root veggies.

Indeed.
The amazing thing is that those burdocks underwent the flash flood last August and the super typhoon last September but survived so well. ☺

The burdock we harvested this time was bigger than the one we harvested before!

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!
