Go out to the farm this morning and check up on the rice development. It looks good to me but Jai thinks that it needs a second dose of fertilizer. I bow to her superior knowledge. Feed the fish who have been taking care of themselves whilst we have been away and they flock (can fish flock ?) to gobble up everything we throw into the water. Back at the house the grass must have been on speed whilst we have been gone and is nearly a metre high everywhere. Along with the kitchen rubbish that has accumulated I desperately need to have a bonfire if only it would stay dry for a couple of days. No actual rain falling today so at least we can do a big laundry to catch up with the holiday washing. Norng Fin comes to visit in the late afternoon and helps Jai to plant some flower seeds that we acquired from the restaurant at Champasak. In the evning we go and visit George & Wan so that Jai can get some more grass for a continuation of the mat making saga.
