If you have never been to a potato digging party I can say with all confidence that you have lived a deprived life. Every year our friends David and Beth plant a big lovely vegetable garden. This year they planted a large crop of yellow and red potatoes that all needed to be harvested at one time. That’s when Beth came up with the brilliant idea for a potato digging party.
We arrived Friday evening with our work clothes on and plenty of shovels. First we feasted on hotdogs, fresh corn from the garden, grilled and seasoned squash, water melon, and some amazing Nutella Rice Krispy treats! After we had eaten our fill, laughed at all the children’s jokes, had seconds on the nutella rice krispy treats; we gathered our shovels and headed down to the garden.
The weather could not have been nicer; cool with just a slight breeze. The company was excellent and many hands made light work.
Beth’s sisters also came to help! Some of you might recognize Mary and Sharon from our Pioneer Women Adventures
We dug and we dug until we had no sunlight left to see by. The children were having a little contest to see who could find the biggest potatoes. These two always seemed to dig up the biggest potatoes!
That night we got home late, with smiles on our faces and a car full of fresh potatoes, canned goodness, sweet corn, summer squash, red onions, and good memories!
Good night my friends! More summer fun to come….
