There are paddy fields in Spain!!!

I never knew that! Outside our window is a paddy field - in fact for about a mile in front of the window there are paddy fields.

View of paddy fields from the apartmentAs soon as you start to think about it - suddenly paella makes sense - but still a bit of trivia I did not know!

Apparently the Valencia region is the best rice in Spain (but they would tell me that wouldn’t they!).

Other farming trivia I have found out - they have three harvests a year here - and it seems almost everything can be grown here. I had honestly never thought about agriculture in Spain - but apparently they are one of the largest agricultural producers in Europe!

That is the end of “Farming Today” from Spain.
