We harvested our first ever rice crop on Nov 15, it dried for five days in the field and was threshed and put away on Nov 21.
Everyone said we got a decent result, we only used a green manure crop before planting and homemade compost halfway through the growing season. The variety we planted, GH6 Chiang Rai, gets pretty tall, about two metres I would say, very lucky we did not get any strong winds before the harvest.
So the first ever experience of growing food went well, in the evening, looking at the sacks of rice, I felt more connected to the land, I take care of her and she will take care of me.
This is our food for the coming year (unless the mice eat it, that is), our first step towards renouncing our dependence to the system.
