~~<p>&quot;How do you like my office?&quot; Edwin Otsuji asks as visitors admire a panorama that stretches from Diamond Head to Maunalua Bay. &quot;Beautiful, yeah? That's why vegetables grow so well here; they love the view.&quot;</p>
<p>Otsuji, 76, has been farming at this site on the slopes of Koko Crater above Kaiser High School for 45 years. &quot;With farming you have to be on top of things seven days a week,&quot; he says. &quot;But when you're harvesting you realize your efforts were worth it. You reap what you sow, which is a great lesson to apply in life in general.&quot;</p>
