Calabanga is one of the major rice producers in the province. With the looming unwelcome downpour coming, farmers are in deep trouble. The vast ricefields at the back of our house are starting to turn their tops heavy-yellowish while some tracts have just started pollinating. Weeks from now, a bountiful harvest is a prospect.
But at this phase, harrowing winds and pelting rain will turn the rice stalks water-heavy, break and soak, or blow the tiny milky pellets off. There is no way to avert massive crop destruction. We wait and pray.
The Glutenous Politics on Rice
An Pagtiripon kan Panganuron
An banwaan saro sa pinaka mayor mag-ani nin paroy sa provincia. Sa nagdadangadang na uran, an mga paraoma dakula an problema. An mahiwas na katamnan nin paroy sa likod nagpopoon pa lang magbunga asin nagbabados. Perang semana an maabot, nag-aandam sa marhay na ani.
Kundi sa ngonian, an makusog na doros asin darakulang uran magpapagabat sa paroy, mabari ini, o kaya ilupad an laman asin maging ata. Mayo man maginibo para ini maibitaran. Naghahalat asin nagpapangadyi.

Oh I remember October is harvest season. I hope the typhoon is going to miss the Philippines this time.
Oh, yes! I do hope the typhoon does miss the Philippines! Hope the rice crop survives! Great shots!
Thanks for stopping by my blog!
Have a great weekend1
i hope with you that the crops are saved. best wishes-
We’ll be praying, too: that the rains will hold and you’ll have a bountiful harvest this year. Your pictures perfectly capture the tension inherent in a life so close to nature.
I hope your rice crop – and the Philippines – are saved, Japa. (And that’s the first time I’ve ever seen rice growing in the fields – normally I just see it dried, in bags from the supermarket!)
hope the rops are not destroyed.
how strange that the water of life can be a source of destruction!
Thanks for coming by. Be safe too.
I think the typhoon is heading for Bicol.
Beautiful grey sky with a little blue in it. =) Thank you for visiting my blog and have a great weekend!
Oh.. this pictures bring back memories 40 years ago, where I used to help my mother at sawah – paddy field. Yes, those carefree days.
Thanks for posting this.
Wild weather in the Pacific this week, hope it is a good weekend at your place.
Fabulous photos you are sharing with Sky Watch Friday.
There have been a lot pictures of worrying skies from the Philippines this week – may all be well with you!
I hope they don’t siffer too much devastation. God be with you.
Looks like a strorm is coming.
Nice photos and thank youfor visiting my skywatch.:)
Good Luck to you – I am hearing about much devastation and more storms on the way. I hope your crops are spared. Stay safe!
The destructive potential of the skies. And how fragile the rice crop is. I hadn’t realised that there was this crucial, fragile stage just before harvest. I hope that the worst results can be averted.
BEautiful and lovely shot !! Nice post..Unseen Rajasthan
