The Farm is Swampy, but Survived!! - Okinawa Organic Harvest

Thanks to many of you checking on us and how the farm fared in the wind and rain with this last Tropical Storm. I would have to say we did pretty good. Our typhoon prep includes covering what we could with nets. This storm dropped a lot of rain, and because the land we are …

We Can See Clearly Now the Rain is Gone! - Okinawa Organic Harvest

We had winds, no where near typhoon strength hit us a couple of days ago, so thanking Mother Nature for that. But she dropped some heavy rains on us in spurts, this is important, because if it is a continually rainfall, the flooding does so much damage. The weeds are loving the big drink they …

Carrots Blush When Seeing a Salad Dressing! - Okinawa Organic Harvest

This is the time of the season when it is particularly hard to get carrots to germinate. The ground is dry, the sun is hot, and the water is available, if you put it there. We water in the evenings and that allows the water to sit on the ground overnight and not dissipate with …

All of the Organic Basil are Bolting… Lemon Basil, Sweet Basil, Cinnamon Basil and Thai Basil, what to do?

Organic Burdock Root and Organic IceBerg Lettuce are Thriving... - Okinawa Organic Harvest

Snails, lots of bugs and weird weather patterns… that is what we are dealing with folks. But, under the nets, we are seeing beautiful organic iceberg lettuce with few signs of bug teeth marks. The Organic Gobo (Burdock Root) is also thriving and will eventually make its way into the baskets/boxes. It is both exciting …

Lots of Organic Sprouting Babies... - Okinawa Organic Harvest

Life on the Organic farm is springing up! We like to sow some seeds directly to the field, when the timing is right. We laid down Green Shiso (Perilla, Beefsteak leaves), and some Cinnamon Basil, both are doing very well. Our intention is to create a Shiso bush using six to eight shiso plants. It …

Farming in the Dark... - Okinawa Organic Harvest

We should probably go home before the nocturnal critters come out. We were watering the crops when tonight’s beautiful sun set. Everything in the ground is happy, we are happy. Preparing to put some Organic Okinawa Purple Sweet Potatoes in the ground, and hoping the Sweet White Corn continues to thrive before it gets …

Organic Tomato Abundance and Sweet Peas/Herbs Thriving - Okinawa Organic Harvest

This season we tried a pretty unconventional way of growing tomatoes by planting them on each leg of a bamboo tripod/teepee style trellis. They climbed, they crawled, they thrived. It wasn’t pretty but it worked and provided an abundance of tomatoes this year. Also it was the second planting of season as the first was …

Birds are Congratulating Us on the Beautiful Sweet White Corn Planting! - Okinawa Organic Harvest

Most organic farmers will not even plant corn in the open and wild as the care is too much because of the pests and critters who are very stealth at getting to the crop very quickly. Last season we put in sweet yellow and mixed corn early. It did very well, in my opinion, where …

Veggies Bolting? Edible Flowers? - Okinawa Organic Harvest

Traditionally, Okinawan farmers follow the lunar calendar for their planting season, but as we all know the weather is not cooperating in recent years. This is especially true this year, crops and plants are getting confused… cold, hot, really hot, cold again… and they bolt. Instead of fighting Mother Nature we eat the bolted flowers …
