Hilling Party Saturday, June 4th, 2011

Susan Marie, Dave, Tanya, Kathy, and Mike and Fireweed danced between the raindrops and our gorgeous looking potato plants with our hoes on Wednesday nite. All the weeds (most, anyway!) have been dealt with, and Saturday's work bee can concentrate on our first hilling. We spent about 1 and a half hours on the job weeding, and the hilling should be even faster! Don't forget to bring a hoe, and/or rake, water and a hat. It's supposed to be warm, and we'll be under a high noon sun! See you at 11:00 am!

Weeding and Hilling: Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

Well, after the monsoon earlier today, the soil is going to be...damp out there! Wear your boots, maybe a rainjacket, and bring your hoe and rake and a paddle and we'll see you in the field! The potatoes are growing too fast not to do what we can tonite. Yes, yes, just kidding about the paddle, but we still nee an extra hoe!
