We’re having a very dry summer. Not great for a rice paddy. Sometimes the water isn’t running because the paddies upstream are using it, sometimes it’s because the ag drain is blocked and sometimes the creek that feeds it is blocked. Today we thought it was problem 3 so off up the mountain to the creek we went. Mr Nagano, naturally climbed down to the creek bed to check it out and check out the big sieve thing that catches debris while I stayed up on the road as bear lookout. Only half joking as we were the wrong side of the wildlife fence.Turns out there’s just not a lot of water around. Guess that’s problem 4!#naganonaturally #growingrice #watersource ...

First picture is the view of my “kitchen garden” from the access road between the neighboring apple farm and the second pic is the view of the apple farm from my field. Years and years ago I planted a packet of sunflower seeds as a barrier for the apple sprayer overspray. There’s actually a shed and access road out there but I wanted to be extra careful. The sunflowers liked this area and now every year we have a veritable forest of them out there. I love their happy faces and I no longer worry about overspray but shade! #naganonaturally #growingsunflowers ... See MoreSee Less

Challenge accepted- massive rolling thunder and dark dark clouds and I have close to 100 kilos of potatoes out there in the field! It’s just me, it’s hard to walk in the sand and I don’t know how long I have. Time to hussle!Mission accomplished- sweaty, dusty mess and the clouds were rolling over me and the first drops falling but all packed away safely. Phew!!! #naganonaturally #growingpotatoes #racingthestorm ... See MoreSee Less

My 4yo student told me she liked frogs.I said me too!She said what types? I said the little green ones mostly but recently the really fast ones with the stripe on their back.She tilted her head and rattled off some frog species name and I shrugged and apologized that I don’t know the names. She said she’s never seen a striped frog just the (species name) and the (species name) ones.I said this one is a different shape and really fast.She asked me to bring one to class next week.I said I’m not that fast but I’ll try and get a picture.That was last Thursday. I have seen the striped frogs every day since but have a camera roll of blurred green background and grassy patches that frogs disappeared from.I was getting a bit worried I wouldn’t be able to bring the goods tomorrow when I looked down from cutting grass with the incredibly noisy brushcutter and right there not moving was my frog! Grabbed the phone out if my pocket, got the shot, and tomorrow I’ll not disappoint a four year old and probably even find out the name of my frog! #naganonaturally #frogsarecool #stripedfrog ...

The reward. After two days of maintenance cutting all the grass (small forest) around the ag drain and the entire field I have a 1 yen piece sized blister on my hand and I fell asleep the moment I sat down to sit for the coffee maker. Quite a shock as I’m not a baller but luckily I woke up again before I missed half the day! But last night we had rain (finally!) and this morning the water was flowing down the drain and into the paddy. Yeah!! And we have lots of pond weed too which is good at shading out the other weeds so double yeah! #naganonaturally #growingrice ... See MoreSee Less
