Digging Potatoes

We started to dig potatoes on Sunday.

Terry did half of a row and the boys and I tackled the other half.

And then I collapsed on the ground.

It's back breaking work.

Terry asked me if I was okay and I said that I was fine....I was just trying to get my back straight again.

He told me not to lie on the ground because it was damp and I'd get sick.

I told him that I didn't care.

I didn't get sick.

We let them dry in the sun for the day and then the kids picked them up and put them in burlap bags.

There were about 250 pounds of potatoes.

That was just one row.

There are six more rows to dig.....
