Harvest 2017 - Farm #2

Once the harvest is completed at one farm, it's on to the second -- but not the last. There are usually others, as family members help relatives and friends on their farms, just as they had with ours.

With our 9 Rai Farm done, a couple of days later the action moved over to our 8.5 Rai Farm and the one rai family farm next to it.



Even Khun Mae -- mother to all the immediate Thai family -- was there.

When all rice had been bagged up, we all took a little break for some soda, beer, lao khao and food. After this, all the guys moved on to Yah's farm to help him, his family and friends bring that one in:

There was probably a little party after this one, but I wasn't invited and didn't stay long enough after the threshing to be. Yah is a friend, looked after me on my first Thung Yai trip, and is a good guy who always seems to be struggling financially. He's a relative, too.
