Rice Fields 1/15/2016

We have been in the Philippines for a year now. I never get tired of seeing the rice fields. There are rice fields anywhere there is room for a rice field. The Filipino farmers work so hard. Most of the work is done by hand, sometimes with the help of a Carabao
Here are just a few of the photos we have of rice fields.

Leveling the fields with Carabao power.

Thinning the fields by hand, of course.

Harvest time. By hand, of course.

The stubble is burned. We can smell the burning rice fields in Molino.  Like the smell now.

A spare Carabao in case one breaks down. I love the Philippines.
