Although the farm manager Kok Leung Sheung did not give her instructions to prepare for bad weather, lady farmer ah Jin told me that she had a gut feeling that a storm was coming. She started digging ditches to channel the rainwater to the brook on the south side of the farm whenever she had time to spare from her daily duties.
As a result, the eggplants (なす), transplanted into this row cover tunnel in March, were spared from typhoon Ewiniar.
Thank you, ah Jin. (ac)
