drift to an organic garden

  • 2012.07.29

It is a residence of T at Akashi-shi.
The purple mold disease has broken out in the Japanese oak of a hedge.
The surrounding environment has a planting portion in along the road of asphalt in the residential street.

The step is weeded out finely.
(The direction of the house took care and was done so)

The grandmother managed in the garden for years this time passed away, and I was allowed to make one proposal by a thing that the young Mrs. will manage the garden.
Doesn't it shift to organic management from the old management method?
Let's install bottom grass and a banker plant and cope with it having no agricultural chemicals and sick.
I planted one share of lippia and one share of ajuga at a time at feet of an oak tree, left the weeds of the big bowl which must have been removed as it was, and it made it have a situation seen.

The shift to Organic Garden needs time.
First of all it is important to change into a healthy state the wooden root and ground of an oak which has a disease of purple mold.
I decided to hear for seeing a situation in autumn.
It is related to shift to a certain meaning and organic management also with shift of a sense of values and a lifestyle.
I just wish it if I have seen a situation and could drift with no stress.

weeding helps you sliming?

  • 2012.08.09

Come to act as a shop tender of kayagreen.

My body fat decreased in number a little more than 3%, and muscles increased by about 2 kg.
Weight is almost same.

I was so surprised.

There must be little time to be kayagreen of weeds and a good friend and spend on weeding compared with other gardens.

Then, my husband said. only by having squatted down when an inner muscle is trained , is it?
If it says so, I would like to measure the grip for which I feel that power came to go into stomach from a front.

Muscle is not visible that the work at full swing that is why an old person often says squats down is hard .

How about if you don't have a garden put a potted plant on the ground, squatting down once and watching once a day?
you might get optional of a diet or muscular increase in quantity other than natural small world follows?



In search of the shade, it is only I in the spot of portisland, and the lunch break, and lunch.

It is hot anyway.
Other craftsmen of the take refuge in air conditioning of a car.

If I have the shade, I am comfortable.
With the shade of a tree, no complaint in addition.
It is the shade of a tree in summer.
Hot weather is maybe a few, I hope.
I will overcome somehow till the Bon Festival.

Thank you very much.


It is organic about "Edible Garden"

  • 2012.09.12

The garden which can be eaten is offered by organic one.
This is likely to serve as a big theme of the production of the garden of the future of kayagreen.

Gardeners are planting the trees for admiration in the garden enough until now.
The garden was in use as for upper-income earners until twenty century.

How is the present age?
We have no doubt to buy vegetables and fruits in a supermarket.
But that various problems lurk there has published on the page of the above-mentioned eco-a partment.

How there should be any present-day garden, a keyword for an individual's future residence is the production of the agroforestry garden become. Doesn't it?

Although it is also the problem of the consciousness of the directivity of future administration, town planning, and a resident that will plant a Japan cedar and a hinoki in a house for the purpose of sales in the future,
I would like to study the production of the garden of also raising, harvesting and enjoying little land from now on.

The beefsteak plant which plants the deciduous tree used as the fuel for a wood stove and which grows under it in the shade a shiso japanese herb is planted in the approach which plants fruit in the circumference of the approach which plants herbs.

The idea has been springing.

Please consult with us once who think that what we will do with the garden by new house.

How about don't think the garden which can be eaten by organic one to be us together?

so many Dragonflies!!!

  • 2012.09.11

The peak of summer passes and it is becoming somewhat cool.
The dragonfly was flying and coming in large crowd also to the garden of kayagreen.
The number was about Twenty!
It was like Naushika's Sivash woods.
It is a little surprised!

Probably a photograph is a gray dragonfly or Akiakane.
Seemingly midsummer is in the cool place of high ground, and Akiakane will get down from it to a village in autumn.
It flew and was coming in large crowd.

A dragonfly eats small insects, such as a mosquito, a fly, a moth, flying.
So I can say, it is natural touch like mosquito-repellant incense.
It is an insect which I want to greatly fly and to come.

It is a gray dragonfly above the picture.

There was one gray dragonfly to Akiakane being a large herd.
It is said that a male will seemingly have a territory and will drive off other males if it investigates.

The dragonfly is flying and it is a sign of autumn also in the small garden.

Does weeds ugly or beautiful? (Summer in 2012)

  • 2012.08.27

Majority of people think, weeds have to be weeding as soon as possible.
It may seem that you are lazy if weeds are grown, or a complaint may be made from the neighbour, or you may be feeling that it is not good to something.

But an open field and a dry riverbed and summer grass are seen have grown thick, and it makes me softened.

Weeds cultivate the ground, help breeding of a microbe, make soil rich, take over a pest, photosynthesize, discharge oxygen, and fix temperature of earth surface.
As for the asphalt of summer, skin temperature also turns into 60 degrees. 。
The place in which weeds have grown becomes temperature about the same as the case where asphalt is watered.

The heat island effect in a city is also controlled.

That is, it is better for weeds to some extent especially to have grown in the garden in urban areas.
It is called banker plants to draw a pest to weeds.
If a single plant is clustered, a pest will concentrate on it.

The method which does not become awkward even if weeds have sprung up is making trees for the natural form of a grass object.
It leaves the weeds which are often likely to observe the weeds which have sprung up and are likely to become a picture, and makes them live together.

Weeds make various flowers bloom according to a season, and also have much grass which can be used, such as mugwort, a dandelion, and dokudami.

I think that that the four seasons can be enjoyed has first weeds.

Although the garden of kayagreen is making whole surface weeds and a curb plant intermingled, if it does not make a mistake in balance, time and effort is not taken, either, and it is single, for example, you notice that there is correspondence power rather than planting of only a lawn.
An always fresh ground is made corresponding to sunny or a season.
And air notices a fresh thing.

Vegetables and fruits become delicious by coexisting with weeds, and become strong.

Since weeds are required for a nature, they exist.
The ground is built, a tree is cultivated and the foundations of an ecosystem are built.

It is because weeds cannot be lived that it is environment with a desert or the Arctic Circle severe for people living.
The city paved all and has made the artificial desert.

Also in order to maintain the fundamental environment where people live, I would like to leave weeds to the city garden to some extent so that planting of a street etc. and the garden of ordinary homes may also use neither agricultural chemicals nor a chemical fertilizer.
