I was born in China and raised in the rural area by my grandparents before I went to primary school. During the spring and early summer, the most enjoyable thing for me to do was walking on the fieldridges and see those little rice shoots grew above the water surface.As you may see, the field in Southeastern China are usually emerged in water during spring and summer because the rice prefers to grow in a swamp environment. The young shoots ofrice, which are usually grown in greenhouse until they’re strong enough, are put into the prepared water-emerged field manually or sometimes by machine (if the field is flat enough of a machine to drive on it). And when the rice are harvested in mid-summer, the water will be drained to prepare for growing wheat in fall which will be harvested in the early spring next year. On a sunny day, those water-fields shimmers like mirror and are unimaginably beautiful.
