A good crop

Yesterday they kept predicting a little snow on the ground by this morning. This is a picture out of the window on my front porch. NO SNOW.
Last summer when our grandson Lane was visiting there some old withered up potatoes in a basket on the back porch. He asked me what I was going to do with them and I told him feed them to the chickens. Lane asked if he could plant them and I said yes "knowing" that they would never grow. Well, Grandma did not always know right because later in the summer there were some very productive looking potato plants.

Today Bob and I got around to digging them thinking there would not be much there. SURPRISE
Here is Lanes crop of potatoes. Isn't that awesome.
Sage went quite well today on our trek to the barn for her grain. She was going to be stubborn but I picked up the rope Bob used to help me yesterday. She was very funny. She looked at me, looked at that rope and came right along. Bless her heart. She is learning to really like those oats.
Cameron came and worked with Liberty today and with just a minimum of assistance he and she made progress. He has never been around horses too much but is willing to learn and does what I ask. That makes it easy to teach someone who is teachable.
Tomorrow I am off to Ellensburg until Sunday. It is always fun and a requirement for me to hold my Horse Show Stewards card.
My hat is off to all the vets who have served our country.
Bless you all.

  1. What a wonderful surprise! I've heard home grown potatoes are much better than storebought, but I've never had any.

    Have fun at your meeting!
