On the Saturday afternoon that the potatoes were all in the ground, I gathered the crew for a quick picture. Our nonagenarian mothers have, for many years, been our potato cutters and this year was no exception as they sat in the doorway of the shady shop chatting and preparing hundreds of pounds of certified organic potato seed for the planter. We couldn't do it without them!
This year our neighbor, Jerry Phillips, rode the potato planter as it deposited its seeds in the waiting warm soil.
Potato planting has been checked off the to-do list for 2016.
