The garden is looking great. Tomatoes are growing well, after a scary start due to fruit flies and blight. The insect net proved to be the right solution, so was heavy pruning to provide better airflow.
Tomatoes are the favorite in our edible garden. We technically eat the fruit of the tomato plant, but it’s used as a vegetable in eating and cooking. This vine plant is fairly easy to grow and will produce a bumper crop with proper care. We have three different kinds of tomatoes.
This one is Beefsteak Tomatoes, from Ferry Morse seeds. The stalks are real sturdy and they are starting to flower now with the first batch of tomatoes appearing. Can’t wait to see how big they will grow.
Currant tomatoes （野生番茄）
The second type is currant tomatoes （野生番茄）, mini in size, each smaller than a grape， bigger than a pea. They look like cherry tomatoes, just smaller. We discovered two huge bushes, growing wild next to the paddy field.
The third type is the local tomatoes, the common varietal found everywhere in Taiwan. Noticed that their flowers are similar to the wild tomatoes but different from the beefsteak tomatoes. They grew well on our farm and have yielded a lot of tomatoes. Each weighing around 80-100g.
This is my second visit, still finds this chapel incredible. Not just the chapel but the whole building is so unexpected in this undeveloped impoverished part of Taiwan even now in 2016 , imagined how strange a structure it must have been in 1960s when the building was built.
The soil is from our rice paddy and it is clay soil. Clay, silt, and sandy soils all behave differently and have different needs. http://garden.org/ediblelandscaping/?page=soil-common-sense
The clay soil is mixed with potting soil, organic fertilizer and also rice husk to add some organic elements.sun dried rice husk

This is the moment we live for …. that fleeting moment when the rhythm of land and sky and everything in between are in sync.
This is a common perennial grass in Taiwan, Miscanthus floridulus 五節芒, commonly known as silvergrass. http://tai2.ntu.edu.tw/PlantInfo/species-photo.php?code=628%20083%2002%200
They grow all over. Depending on the soil condition, some may be red but they are usually beige/yellow. This is how they look in the wild.
The unfurling of the inflorescence.
Inflorescences turn silvery as the seed sets, with the continuing flower effect of the plumes lasting well into if not through the winter.
