Tending Vegetables in the Japanese Heat

Here is the new episode of the Kokoro Media remote farming project which involves you, readers! (You can find our previous episodes here.)

Last month, Japanese organic farmer Masamichi showed us how fast plants had grown and the consequences of the rainy season. Now that the rainy season is over, how do you tend the vegetables in the terrible Japanese summer heat?

Masamichi explains it in the following video!

Born in France, I've been living in Japan since 2011. I'm curious about everything, and living in Japan has allowed me to expand my vision of the world through a broad range of new activities, experiences, and encounters. As a writer, what I love most is listening to people's personal stories and share them with our readers.
