Potatoes….

…September...
Harvesting month… then we all start to think of when the potatoes will be harvested…it dependes a lot of the weather…this year it was rather early… the frost took the potato foliage a week ago…so there was no return…the potatoes must up!!!
And we all know what this means…sore back, legs and arms… 😦
We went early Saturday morning ( 25 swedish miles)…loaded Lindas furniture in a trailer… glad mom and dad have space enough to store whatever we come with… 🙂 THANKS!!!
And were we lucky with the weather this year or what!!!!
Sunny and warm…a beautiful day and NO wind…
We have harvested the potatoes in all kind of horrible weather…but I think it was worst when there was snow on the ground!!!!
And a happy surprise for this year…we were many “madmen” who had joined… the more the merrier… 😉
My brother with family were there…my aunt and friend were there…my dad drove the old tractor and…boy…they were quite happy when we came… Me, Lars, Petra and Viktor…
My Mum…she got time off this year…from the potatoes … the cows still needed to be milked and fed… and we also had good food…fresh cooked potatoes …that is sooooo good…. 🙂
And all the potatoes were harvested in ONE day…hurray!!!!!
We did a VERY good job!!
So I´m not that sore at all… 🙂
On the way back home we filled the trailer with logs …and now we do feel very rich…we have firewood for the winter and yummy fresh potatoes….
Did I sew any…Nah…not a single stitch…but I did have it with me… 🙂
