June paddy catchup in pictures


Another year, another rice harvest. (June 9th for record keeping sake)


Another year, another go at stringing the paddy.


Another year, another flock of ducks.

What? You can't see them? You want MORE duck?


Ok. 


Another year another round of early morning paddy visits.


Another year, another round of admiring the dawn canvas.

What do you do with the ducks after the rice farming season ends?

Once the rice gets seed heads on it we have to remove the ducks as they would eat the rice.

The ducks are sent to a fattening farm two towns away with everyone else in our duck-rice group's ducks and fattened up on good food and veggie scraps until November when we all get together and they are (humanely) slaughtered and cleaned up and we divvy them up to eat with the rice.
