#242 Farming the Lake


On Laguna de Bay, on the side where it borders the town of Taguig, water spinach (Kangkong) is farmed along its shallows. They float like grass mats atop fishing nets, stretched-out as far as your eyes can see. And with good light and flowing water, you realize why they just grow like crazy here. Twice a day, they are harvested and tied into approximately 3 kg bundles. They are sold to middlemen who will haul them to market... all part of a supply chain that puts food on our table. Now you know. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: I've been taking photographs of these seemingly endless mats all morning. They look like nice empty landscapes, nothing more, until we chanced upon some men dragging their harvest to shore. The human element in a landscape cannot be discounted. Look for it.)
