Potato harvest

Got the last of them out of field #1 today. Just over 30 kgs. Bringing the total so far to about 50 kgs. The earworms on the corn turned out to be threadworms and are doing a number on half of a row, totally stinks. I picked them off and squeezed the ears to kill the ones inside. Just hope they don't get to the other rows. Very disheartening. Was talking to the owner of the next field over, he gave me some much needed pointers on soil amendment. We both agree that this farming stuff is one tough business. I give the local guys tons of credit, I don't see how they make a living at it.
