Wistful Wednesday

The news that I've heard about the South losing millions of dollars because they can't plant rice --- too much water in the fields --- makes me yearn for the "good old days" ... when it didn't seem to matter how much water was in the fields.

The Japanese did it... Not that I'm saying that we go back to hand planting, but still ... it has its appeal!


My Dad took this picture in the early 50s (1950s) in Southern Japan

Fascinating shot. Rice thrives in lots of water, but other crops don't...
