Lands that time forgot--urban farms in central China

The rapidly growing "wealthy" areas of China have surrounded and bypassed pockets of underdevelopment in most major cities.

Some of these areas are about 2 km on a side, but surrounded by 8-lane highways. The farms themselves look rustic, but they are surrounded by apartment blocks.

Less than a kilometre from major development . . .

Charming, rustic scenes not far from the latest shopping malls!
