When they plant, they cover the rows with giant plastic.
As the seedlings grow, the cut little slits for them to grow...and cover them with these "bubbles" - domes of plastic. In a bit the make holes in them so the water can get in and some humidity out....
Today, in a field near us, the farmer was removing the bubbles - a sure sign summer is here for REAL.
I'm amazed at how hard farmers work - and they're not spring chickens. To the right of the lady you see a flooded rice paddy....the subject of the next blog post.
I want to go around town and snap photos showing the way they use EVERY spare bit of land to plant crops. It's really amazing.
Living all of life before the face of God...
