Death by Harvest: A Story of Tractor Breakdowns!

Tractor breakdowns prevented a smooth second half of our 2018 California rice harvest. It was rare having all three of our harvest combines cutting rice at the same time.

In this harvest video you'll see our Claas Lexion 585R, John Deere CTS 2 and John Deere 9660 CTS. With all the mechanical trouble, breakdowns and slow progress we also decided to buy a lightly used Claas Lexion 750.

California's Unique Tractor: The "Bankout" aka Auger Wagon

The "Bankout" aka auger wagon, grain cart or chaser bin is certainly one of California's most unique tractors. Welcome to our farm and ride along with me during our 2018 rice harvest.

The bankout was developed by Al Pike of Richvale, California, in the heart of the northern Sacramento Valley's rice fields, in the 1960s. The bankout featured in this harvest video was originally purchased by my grandfather in the 60s and has been used on the family farm ever since.

Cheesy Zucchini Rice Recipe

A little bit of chicken broth, rice, cheese, and zucchini, yep that's pretty much all it takes to make this flavorful cheesy zucchini rice side dish. It's a really pretty and simple side dish that pairs well with grilled meats. I'm always looking for ways to add in more veggies without actually tasting them too much and this side dish does a great job at that.
