田植えの準備を始める。
Starts to prepare for rice planting.

種籾を選別するため、塩水につける。
First of all, need to put in salt water to screen rice seeds.

卵が浮くくらい、という旦那さんの指令だが、これが結構大量。
塩を入れても入れても、浮いてこず、飽きてきたころに、ようやく塩水完成(笑)
Making salt water. Husband says to put salt until raw egg floats on water.
But add salt a large amount! 
When I'm getting bored with this work, finally floats egg.

浮いたのを外す。
買った籾はさすがに少ない~(自宅採種だと、4、5割くらい浮いてきた
Remove floating seeds.
If rice seeds which I buy, bad seeds are so few.
(Rice seeds in-house seed, bad ones are more than 40%...)

金魚用に作った山水循環システムが役に立った!
手間いらず~
Well works filtration system for the water from the mountain.
Husband made it for goldenfishs. Trouble-free!

月末には、苗箱作り。
At the end of April, let's make seeding boxes.
