Paddy Fields Forever

It+Grows
It Grows

One area of considerable satisfaction from the past year are the terraced fields orginally laid out by the Japanese farmers in 2006. Over the past 3 years we have been developing what was totally impossible soil that would sustain nothing more than bracken and grass. Through a process of mulching and green nmanure we have now got two fields working successfully as vegetable plots - the only challenge now is getting people to eat the vegetables we have produced - it is difficult to restrict a 21st century diet to 4 or 5 vegetables, people are just not used to it. The honesty stall has comments on it's notice board asking for more fruit, like so much in the world 'they just don't get it'.
