Farm caretaker Nong Endring Paragas plants rice here twice a year, the dry months (March-May), the land is on fallow, rest. Our friend Charlie Espinosa, a local farmer, helps Nong endring till this land.
The mature rice as seen from the 2nd floor of my treehouse.
I went back to the farm last weekend. The harvested area. Nong Endring used to have cows before, the rice straw would be consumed by the cows. He sold all his cows a few years ago as he was getting older. The rice straw was burned.
Young rice plants as of late November 2014. Above photo facing the treehouse, lower photo taken from the 2nd floor of the treehouse.
The irrigation canal that brings water to the ricefield. Also taken last November.
