What do I do with 3 bored farmers in March? I send them to potato school of course! Last week RJ, John and Curtis attended the 2018 Ontario Potato Conference & Trade Show in Guelph. The conference is an excellent chance to network with many professionals in the industry, learn about cutting edge technology and equipment, and prepare for new challenges that may face us in the upcoming year. The guys came back rejuvenated and full of ideas that we will plan forward to implementing at our farm. I sent them with strict instructions to take pictures for the website. When they returned, I discovered that their idea of pictures for the website was somewhat different than mine would have been. These photos taken by John highlight the drive to Guelph, one picture of the conference and a picture of the CanadaGap App brochure. I have left out the 7 pictures he took of Curtis buttering his bread at lunchtime…geez!! You can visit “Spud Smarts – About Growing Potatoes” to learn more about growing a potato crop.
