spuds, delayed

Our seed potato order arrived yesterday.

We purchase in bulk, with a bunch of other farmers.

Delivery is a big truck full of 50 pound bags of seed potatoes. Delivery in the loosest sense of the word: unloading is at the hands of the farmers.

Homer was there with the crowd. Original time was 1pm. Then 4pm. Then 7pm. At 9pm he returned to the farm with our spuds, now safe from freezing but not yet in the ground. We let them warm up a bit before planting.

So glad so many showed up to help unload. Many hands make for light work.
