Oven and Rice update

Cob pizza oven during polishing process. Kind of looks like my dad's head....
Well the oven has dried enough for me to polish it up a bit. It now doesn't look quite as rough as it did yesterday. The polishing was simple. I took a plastic wrapper- I think that it was an old potato chip bag- put it on my hand like a glove, and smoothed out the dome. The best way was to rub it in circles, like waxing a car. Now it is much, much smoother.

The rice paddy is doing well- I think. Having never done this before, I am not so sure. But it looks OK to me so far. I lowered the water level slightly since a few seedlings were completely underwater when I checked on it this morning.
