Wally–thanks for the pictures. I found this surfing the internet: http://www.encyclopediaofarkansas.net/encyclopedia/entry-detail.aspx?entryID=380 Somehow I can’t get it to paste as a link, but if you copy and paste it in the proper bar, you can get there. J.

Yeh, why didn’t you tell me you were in Sacramento??

Do they grow rice there
June 4, 2016 at 14:36
Yup. We have a large rice growing area in the Delta.

So this was not anything new to you LOL. It’s not grown in a huge number of places, from what I understand it almost has to be in a river delta type of environment. I think I tend to forget that California, despite the zillions of people, is quite a big agricultural state also.

We are surrounded by agriculture in the San Joaquin Valley. Around us are walnuts, almonds, dairy and various processing plants. Not to mention E&J Gallo winery.

Well, now that winery is important LOL

It’s interesting that unless you know where it is, there are no signs that advertise it.

I live in a rural area these days. That’s quite an adjustment for someone born and raised in NYC (LOL). Not that I’m making unfavorable comparisons. The natural beauty is amazing. Everywhere it seems there is proof of God’s existence, and His love for His creation. The parables are within reach here.

Oh..I was raised in the city myself Anna. Little Rock, not NYC, but a city. Only been a country boy for about 8 years. Yep, it’s an adjustment LOL. I understand where you are coming from on that issue!

This is going to show how ignorant I am…but I didn’t know they grew rice in America.

Many don’t know that. You ought to read the article on the link Don posted in the thread, it’s pretty fascinating. I actually didn’t know that your own state, California, is also a major rice grower. Apparently Arkansas, Louiiania, and California grow 80 percent of the rice produced in this country. When I was a kid in school they used to teach us that Arkansas was the biggest rice exporter to, of all places, China.
