That dreaded word…blight…seems to have struck our main crop, so it was all hands to the deck to harvest all the varieties of potato. Suz’s parents, Colin and Jackie, were fantastic enough to come and chip in (ho ho ho…potatoes…chip…<slump>), and with all 6 of us down the patch it made things so much quicker. We left them on the soil overnight to dry out – the weather’s been perfect for getting them done.
As a big plus for Smiler, a new combine happened to roll past and a few minutes later he was trundling around the field next door bringing in the corn (thanks Rob!).
