more rice planting

in the original rice field - rice 1, we had managed to get some life going post the floodings.

using the local rice planting frenzy, we embarked on another experiment in rice 2.
i had promised a update on rice 1.

continuing to use the local frenzy, we got neighbourly assistance as one stack of rice saplings from their mega nursery.

this is a rice variety called ponni and is a duration of 150+ days and the nursery was over 45 days old and hence was of the same timing as our earlier lot (variety called nawabi kolam).

we transplanted it and covered a decent portion of the empty plot.

the earlier transplanted saplings are doing very well.

phew - sundays are packed or what:-)
