Rice Fields of Arkansas

This rice well with the fields of lush green rice were a welcome change from the austere landscape we usually see in east Arkansas on our Christmas trips. This field is between Harrisburg and Waldenburg, Arkansas. August 1, 1982.

This was just like the rice wells that Uncle Leland Bunch had on his farm near Auvergne, Arkansas. I worked around them a lot as a teenager. Between ages 13 and 17 I drove tractors on that farm, working in rice during the last couple of those years.
