The farmer planted some potatoes early this spring as an experiment. We usually plant at the regular time in late spring but he wanted to see if they would grow if he planted very early, like when there was still frost occasionally.
One potato, two potato. They did indeed grow and actually were ready quite a bit earlier than in the past summers.
Our granddaughters, Emma and Lucy, were on the potato digging crew. Well maybe they were the entire crew.
Part of the many potatoes they dug up.
But Emma? She didn't care about any old dirt. Have you ever seen such pure glee?
Do you remember digging for potatoes?
