. Today was our regular day off and it was a beautiful 15 deg sunny day , so it looks like spring has come early to Niigata this year. With such fantastic weather we drove out to our community organic farm and weeded our vege patch , racked up the soil, spread a mixture of organic fertilizer over our vege patch , and even put down two new patches as we would like to grow more vegetables this year. Then we covered everything in plastic garden sheets which will come off in a months time , then we can plant out this seasons new organic vegetables. The onions and garlic that we planted late last year are looking really good and have survived our mild winter , they should be ready in June to harvest. Also we would like to say a big thank you to Abe san who helped us this morning. After 3 hours of gardening this morning some pints of Guinness will taste pretty good tonight , after all it is St Patrick's day today !
