Farming in Pua

Peanuts flowers growing in Pua, North Thailand

Despite it being the dry season (and it has not been raining for 3 months) there is always water in the valley of Pua. There are many small rivers coming from the mountains of Doi Phu Kha that supply water for the farmers. So around our house there is always something growing. Of course in the raining season there is rice. Some farmers start early and can even do 2 rice harvests per year. But most people do only 1 rice harvest and after that they start to grow other things like peanuts, corn, chilli's, onions, garlic or leaves to be used for smoking tobacco. So around our homestay it is always green! Following are some photos of what is growing around us.
