Before the tractor work started and life got busy, I thought I would be able to depict each process of planting rice. This is chiseling. Here is discing and here is land-planing. I was wrong. I'm just too busy with other tasks involved in putting in a rice crop.
So follow me throughout this typical 14-hour workday as we are 2.5 weeks into planting rice here in Northern California. We got a late start due to the late rains so we are in high gear all the time!
The 1989 California rice harvest was one to remember. Early fall rains created poor cutting conditions and extended the harvest late into fall.
The slow cutting and down rice reflects the harvest we had this year in 2017. However, instead of rain we had intense heat which cause rapid overgrowth of the rice plant which took it down and created slow difficult cutting conditions.
In 1989 Pops harvested 1,000 acres of rice with 3 Massy Ferguson MF 760s.
Today we have a John Deere CTSII and 9660 CTS as well as a Claas Lexion 595R. We farm 1,600 acres of rice.
I show you how to make mochi donuts! These are easy gluten-free donuts that have amazing chewy texture. I show you how to make them with some rice flour, eggs, milk, sugar, matcha, and cocoa powder. One of the best parts is that these don't need to proof, so you can easily make these in a little over an hour.
