At this time of year we are gathering up the remains of the harvest.I don't harvest potatoes or pumpkins until November. Here are my grandsons in August 10 yrs ago digging up supper for that evening.
This year we got a potato plow attachment for our tractor. Of coarse my hoe worked better. Out of frustration my husband dropped the tractor shovel & scooped along the ground. A few potatoes got creamed but the rest were dislodged from their tight soil spots and we scooped them up & dropped them into a bag.
(Gus loves to pose for pictures.)It's 17 degrees out tonight.Dog gone cold.I brought all the remaining pumpkins , apples and potatoes into the dining room to store for now, wherever I could find a spot. That room is closed off with french doors from the rest of the house and has no heat unless I open 2 sets of doors to allow the heat from the woodstove to flow warm air to it.The kitchen still has another 12 gallon crock of sauerkraut fermenting. The harvest is at it's end and I am so relieved. Then I can take a nap and start sewing for Christmas presents when I wake up. (:>
