Muddy day

 

I’m finally getting the rest of my potatoes harvested. I dug up a hundred feet yesterday and about fifty feet today. There is another thirty or so feet left. The rain has gone on for two full days. Sometimes it comes in downpours, but mostly it’s been a continuous mist. The soil is muddy and cold with all the rain but there isn’t much time left so you just get out there dig. On Thursday the temperatures are probably going to drop to around freezing and it may even snow a little on Friday. I’ll have to put down a thick hay layer over the beets and carrots tomorrow and dig them on Sunday or Monday when the rain will have passed by.
