The tractors have now moved off the home farm and on to other fields. This means is it slightly quieter around the house…but I use those words lightly. Peace and quiet on a farm is a February event! The planting of the potato crop seems to be on schedule despite the cool, wet weather this spring and untimely equipment repair needed on the seed potato cutter. All the Yukon Gold potatoes have been planted and we have moved onto the Russet potatoes. And in the meantime, RJ has planted the first two sections of sweet corn! For more information about the potato planter you can visit “Journey To The Underground Part II.”
