In Celebration of St. Patrick's Day

we planted potatoes.  It was a gorgeous weekend so Farmer Joe and I got a few things checked off the to do list.  Saturday was spent running errands, building two new raised beds and a visit to a local greenhouse to see what was sprouting.  Sunday we planted potatoes.  This may seem an odd St. Patty's day tribute, but in my weird logic it fit.  St. Patty's day is an Irish celebration, Ireland is famous for the potato famine which brought some of my ancestors to this country, so we planted Irish potatoes in remembrance.  I know my brain is strange.  Cooler weather has set in again this week, so we will be working indoors again.  Hopefully by the weekend we will be ready to move yet another load from the rental house.  My goal is to be out of it by April 15th.  All prayers for some good luck on that front would be much appreciated.

  1. Hey, it all makes perfect sense to me...I think!

    Besides, you can never have enough potatoes, right?

    Good luck on the deadline!
