"How to grow rice" sounds a big title, but I hope I can send information on it through my occasional observation of the actual agricultural work in a nearby rice paddy. It is located just a few minutes walk down from my home which is located in the western suburbs of Oita city.

Wheat is growing now in rice paddies. Some of them were already cropped.

This paddy will soon be watered. Far beyond is the brown ripened wheat. For your reference, my home is on the left side hill of the paddy.

At a corner of the rice paddy are seedling beds. When they sprout, rice planting starts at last. To tell the truth, I know nothing about actual rice growing work. Any comment is welcome to correct my descriptions. The end of the first report. Mie
