Rain threatened, and we headed to hill to get some big jobs done.

The kids spent a lot of time in the shade, but when they pitched in, they were a big help.

You never know what’s going on with those underground crops.  The weeds were really out of hand, but the potatoes were just great.

We planted just over a bushel, and hauled fourteen bushels down the hill.  Best ever.

    • This year we grew Kennebecs and Yukon Golds. Usually we like to throw a few reds in there too, but they were sold out. Weeds have been big this year. Fortunately, lots of crops have been happy enough to compete with them.
