Rice Farming & Harvesting (On Murals)
On the road :)
Traditional ploughing (using a carabao).
Sowing rice seedlings...
It's harvesting time!
The rice grains are so ready...
Sharing these murals or street arts which we have captured during our road trip to another town sometime last month. We passed by the same place in 2021 enroute to Bokod and that part of the street wall was just starting to have colors. This was one of the captures at that time.
It's quite fascinating how they simulated the process of rice farming through paintings and also showcased the olden folks on their classic garments. Tapis for women and g-strings for men. These type of ethnic wears cost quite a fortune nowadays.
And here's how I'm arranging them according to how I think they would go :)
I see this painting as clearing away the land. I can't comprehend what's written there though.
Clearing out the rocks maybe or putting them on the sides.
Then the traditional way of ploughing the land with the use of a carabao. I think this practice is still done in some small farms where they grow rice. Not really sure though as I haven't seen one personally.
Then it's sowing time! One of the women here is pricking the seedlings out whilst her companions are doing the planting.
Then it's reaping season as shown in the paintings. I'm not really sure about the exact length of time rice plants need before they get harvested. Some say it takes half a year, others claim 4 months or so.
Here's how the harvesting process has been depicted on the artwork. I mentioned in one of my writings, I do have a wish to personally be on the planting field. Hoping that one day we get to travel to a place that would allow me to have such an experience.
Meanwhile, the weekend is nigh, yay!
Friday here and I bet some of those who are in the 9-5 lifestyle are looking forward to the coming day. Tomorrow for me means going out for some fun. There's an upcoming festival and I'm quite excited about it.
Until then, cheers and have a blast today!

The mural or painting really portrait the life of our farmer especially those planting rice. They are our hero.
Yes sis :) Always thankful to those who toil and make rice available to us.
my father stopped plowing the ricefield with cows from like 10 years ago. now it is being replaced with small tractors. sad but the change is inevitable.

It's indeed inevitable. And it's good too because the cows will now be given relief from the tough job they do in the fields.

ang galing naman! this would be a good idea sa mga areas din sa other parts of the country na may mga side walls noh.. it's very educational and patriotic!
Tama sis :) Ginagawang makulay din ang road walls hehe.

Wow! How beautiful Baguio is. It is one of my bucket lists sis, hehe. I was supposed to be there to join a National Science Fair together with my students but there were travel restrictions and lockdowns due to the wide spread of Covid-19 for the first time, that is why we have backed out. Best regards sis CJ!
Thank you sis, this isn't exactly in Baguio though, it's in Kabayan, Benguet :)
Sorry to hear you had to back out of the Science fair. Per my experience, it's one of the most fun activities for secondary students. Hope you get another chance in the near future😉

Halos walang barrier sa gilid ang daan?
Some parts tulad don sa first photo wala pero mostly, merong concrete barrier.
Take me with you in this journey of yours
Excelente, es una historia contada a través de murales, que bonito paisaje.
