Nicely Stan, I bet it's hard work in all that heat!
Thanks Andy; That's what they tell me.
Nice Haiku and picture. I always though rice grew in water but that doesn't look so wet? Maybe if we saw more of the picture. Interesting, thanks for sharing this.
Good quality rice is grown in flooded paddy fields. Other rice is grown basically in mud. Here the rice has been harvested and the grain is being separated and bagged for use/sale. The actual rice fields are behind me.
Thanks Dee, for your comment.
Oh, my. So true, and it's a problem that won't go away with just pesticides and platitudes.
Thanks Ann; Life - but not as we know it.

Interesting social spin. Is your wife Thai?
Thanks Irene; Yes, and we have two children pictured in the sidebar and on various posts.
hunger is often a good motivator....
Thanks Pieceofpie; In this case, the motive is money - to pay the bills etc.
