Taters in the Ground

We traditionally plant our taters on Good Friday or that weekend.  We were worried that we wouldn't be able to due to tractor problems but God provided a neighbor from up the road to use his tractor-pulled tiller through our garden.  We acted fast and threw taters in the rows while we could!
Princess #1 and Princess #2 did a great job helping this year!  They were very interested in planting for the first time ever.  We hope to involve them in the entire gardening process this year.

We planted red pontiac potatoes again this year.  I like red potatoes better than kennebecs and they are much easier to find when I go out to dig up a mess for supper during the summer.

We had our first hatching of chicks this week.  Mama hen did very well and hatched 8 babies.  She's as crazy as ever but that's what makes her such a great mom. I've yet to get a good picture yet but I'll post one next week for sure.
