Potato Harvest

I am working for my Dad this fall digging potatoes. They grow over 500 acres for the french fry world of McCains and Cavendish. I think we are almost 1/4 done and maybe a little bit more than that now. We are working long days, 12-14 hours, but some days it does rain and we do get to go home a bit earlier. Needless to say I have not been doing too much here on the farm these days. I need to get my garlic planted ASAP and hopefully that will get done this week or next. Here are a few pics from the potato harvest. I hope to have some more to post soon.

Nice pics sis! I miss the smell of potato digging! Except if there's rotten ones of course... Thanks for the pics!
