Yesterday, I finished digging potatoes about twenty minutes before the cold front and rain hit. It was a huge adrenalin rush getting them off the wagon and into the header house. The first rain drop splattered on the brim of my hat as I was driving my tractor in from the field (There are times I wish I had a cab... this was one of them) but before the deluge hit, I was able to get all of the bags safely under cover. I shut the door on the potato digging and went into the house to cook supper.
This brings us to today. Day #1. I'm considering this Day #1 because this is the first day of trying to sell potatoes. I opened the door to the header house this morning and discovered that it was full. Well, maybe not "full" full, as there is still a small area to walk to the other end. Still, there's about 2000 lbs of potatoes to sell! The bounty of the garden never ceases to amaze me, even on a year such as this when the growing conditions were beyond challenging.
