Potato Harvest Time

We’ve been trying to harvest potatoes for quite some time now; both irish potatoes and sweet potatoes.  After finally acquiring the right tools for the job, it has been a waiting game with the rain.  Last week’s rain on Monday and Tuesday delayed us but we were still able to dig 2 beds of sweet potatoes on Friday and about 12 beds of potatoes on Monday.  The rain yesterday will once again set us back from finishing this long-awaited task as it will be too wet to drive the tractors and their digging implements into the fields.  In the meantime here are a few pictures of the harvest…while it lasted.  View more on the Flickr site (click on the pictures to the right).
