Rice Harvest

The rice stalks were harvested with a curved-bladed hand sickle, tied into bundles and stacked standing erect to dry. This was slow, seemingly never ending hand labor and was just one step of harvesting. The paddy is dry for harvest which is a blessing because planting, replanting and weeding are done standing bent over in water.
