We were at the edge of the floating gardens. The floating gardens consist of large clumps of grass anchored in the lake by bamboo poles and various kinds of crops get grown here. This is a significant portion of Myanmarese agriculture. It seems like a good system; irrigation is automatic; people can use boats to tend to the crops/ And since the lake height varies during the year because of intense rainy season and intense dry season these fields can just rise and fall automatically.
