Tragic Rice Story

Our rice story this year may turn out a little tragic. Despite having so much help planting, the weeds were even quicker to sprout this year, and by the time I got around to trying to till them in, it was almost impossible to tell what was a weed and what was a rice stalk. One of our smaller fields is a complete loss. I can’t tell anymore so will end up just cutting everything down.

To top it off, by the time I did get done tilling all the other fields, the weeds in the first field had started coming up again, so it all starts over. And for some reason the rice is growing way slower this year than in previous years, despite putting in a lot more fertiliser and controlling the water better.
