I took this photo at lunch to send to Mr Nagano, naturally so he could see the water level in the field when I stopped the inflow. It was really sunny and reflective on my phone screen and I couldn’t actually see the photo I was taking.Turns out it was pretty useless for checking water levels but I quite like it as a picture! #naganonaturally #reflections #growingrice ...

We need rain badly. It seems every k truck I pass has a water tank on the back and I’ve stopped even taking mine off when I get home. The rice paddy is fine and it’s actually great for the wheat but the veggies are looking a little tired and stressed. This morning’s news said 30% chance of rain.By midday it was 10%.I heard thunder as I left work at 6:20 and eagerly checked my phone. My phone told me it was raining. Hmmmm not where I was.The city emergency mail system sent out a heavy rain and flood (!!) advisory. I had planned to do another hour of watering after I got home so was quite excited at the idea of heavy rain.I’ve been home two hours now and this is the extent of the rain we have had. Impressively big raindrops but they each needed to bring a hundred or so friends! The weather report suggests I shouldn’t pack my water tank away anytime soon either. #naganonaturally #waitingforrain #weatherobsessed ... See MoreSee Less

From my truck window. I was quite worried as it seemed unnatural for a bird of prey to let me get so close. I was thinking it must have eaten poisoned rodents or something but an hour later when I went home again it had flown off. They often fly around above the rice paddies looking for frogs and I saw a couple near here so I am assuming it was one of them. Still it was a unique experience being this close!You can also see the reason Japan has such big apples in the background- they thin the apple bunches from 5-6 down to one per cluster. That’s what all the green things are under the tree- rejected baby apples. #naganonaturally #wildlifeencounters #growingapples ... See MoreSee Less

I told someone last week I’d been farming rice for 10 years. Well Facebook told me this photo was taken 13 years ago and that’s definitely me and I’m definitely holding rice so I guess I’ve reached the forgetful years. Here’s to many more years and loving long enough to forget them too! #naganonaturally #growingrice #timeflies ... See MoreSee Less

It’s Koshoku week. Hoshoku is the job of going up and down and up and down the rows of rice seedlings and straightening the crooked ones, replacing the missing ones, digging out the buried ones etc etc. This year Mr. Nagano, naturally had his best year ever on the rice planter and there are very few issues out there. So it’s basically a slow stroll up and down the rice paddy enjoying watching tadpoles and water bugs doing their thing. When I finish for the day I need to know where I ended up so I know where to start the next morning. Tonight when I “planted” this mugwort in my mud pyramid I thought it was quite beautiful against the background of the evening light. #naganonaturally #growingrice #hoshoku #paddylife ...
