Friday was a beautiful day with Carolina blue sky, I stopped by the rice paddy after work, and the lady that owns the middle paddy was harvesting her rice crops. I saw her 2 weeks ago and gave her last year’s photos that I had developed for her, and it was this time last year when I first met her.
The hot summer sun really speeds things up, her rice crops are beautiful.
She said that some of the rice pods started to die and couldn’t figure out why, I noticed that a while back also, and it’s kind of odd because the rice plants still look very healthy.
Perhaps this little guy has something to do with it.
I noticed that the grasshoppers love to hide, I must be a giant to them, here is a closeup photo of him.
At first I couldn’t figure out what this net is for, and if it were a trap for insects, I wonder if it works.
After seeing this little guy dangling here, I guess it does work.
See what he looks like closeup.
This is the first paddy near the road, it belongs to my co-worker, and she harvested hers last week and this week.
I like her boots, this is what people in Laos need to wear in their rice paddy.
