Thursday Snapshot: Harvested Bundles of Rice
Freshly harvested bundles of rice lying in wait in the field.
As I mentioned yesterday, we took a trip this past fall to help One Life Japan harvest their rice. It was one of the coolest trips ever - excellent company, scrumptious food, and outstanding scenery - and I learned loads. In the article at Kansai Scene I mention that after we cut the stalks we laid them in bundles behind us with the stems crossed. Here's a photo of what that looked like before we started to bundle them for hanging.
