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!
