It has only been a week and I can see the rice pods from the road now. The rice paddy is extra green and since we only had 1 thunder storm this week, more water is needed for the paddy.
These are Kao Kom (purple) sticky rice, they came out a bit early.
See the purple color outlining the rice pods.
These are the normal sticky rice.
These are the 2 back small paddies, they are the Jasmine white rice.
The water in the paddy is very clear.

Wow, the pictures of the rice field look so nice.
Laos-travel, thanks. I think it’s equally as pretty as the rice paddy in Laos.
Nice pictures! This is interesting! =) It didn’t take long for it to grow, it seems.
Hi Maly, thanks for your comment and visit. They started planting in mid May, so it should be ready to harvest by the end of August, less than 4 months. Here are the posts from last year of this same paddy during the harvest season, it’s very pretty. 🙂

[…] and it’s because they didn’t finish planting it until late May. In comparison to last week, the pods are more visible from the road now, and the aroma is real nice, I bet it would be a great […]
