The power of bacteria in soil making
”Plants grow completely differently depending on the amount of bacteria in the soil.”
Since the soil is cultivated by microorganisms, it is soft without having to use tractors.
You could feel autumn approaching in Saito’s field, with vegetables such as sweet potato, pumpkin, Chinese water spinach, okura and carrots.
The fertility of the soil affects the taste
”Normally, farmers use additional fertilizer to stimulate growth, but we don’t do that either. If there is too much nitrogen, the vegetables become lanky. We stick to the idea of increasing the fertility of the soil.”
Among the vegetables which Saito makes, one that is getting the most attention now is a carrot called ”Hitomi Gosun”.
The vegetables in Saito’s fields have the genuine taste of good ingredients. They have great taste. They can even be eaten raw as an accompaniment for ”sake”.
