Potato harvestor in Mexico

My wife thought our trip to Mexico would take me (and her) away from tractors and tractor talk for a entire week...nope.

First morning on the beach this comes roaring by, I look at my wife with a grin and she gives me the I don't believe it look she does. Of course I had to get up and go get a closer look when he came back again...wish I would have got a closer picture of it.

I didn't see any potatoes coming up, but they were getting lots of sea weed and ocean trash in it.
I thought potatoes liked sandy soil??

PS- we just installed Windows 10- adding a picture to a post got even easier now.

Tim, Are you sure it wasn't just cleaning the beach for the gringo tourists? :D

Ohhhhh, yeah, maybe that's what they were doing :lol:

Got to get up pretty early to fool this bunch. They had a sign on the beach explaining how the warmer ocean water is now making the weeds break off and float into shore more and more. An increasing number of resorts are now using these weed harvesters to keep up with it. Use to be done just by workers, rakes , an a wheelbarrow.

It was fun to watch, he got close to getting stuck a couple times when the hopper got full. I couldn't believe how close to the water he would get, but then it was 4 wheel drive.
