As of January 2017, I have restarted this blog on a new platform with a new look and a new name. All of the content on this blog has been copied to the new blog.
Our new blog is called a Lot & a Couple. www.alotandacouple.com
Back in July, I did a post on the growing Fields of Rice that fill the countryside here. In the photos of that post, you can see the rice transform from small scraggly sprigs to lush tall grass. Now the rice is changing once again. Stocks have appeared among the slender leaves, bending with the weight of the rice grains at the ends. Each pearly white grain of rice is protected by a fuzzy hull. It won't be long now before the rice is ready for harvesting.
"Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later."
