Braden Thinks We Over Did It!!

Tomorrow Braden and Caib are riding in a Working Ranch Horse Competition. They are pretty excited about it and wanted to get home from school today and head right up to the Rodeo grounds to practice. That wasn't in the master plan today. Dad informed Braden that we would be digging potatoes first. I had to throw in my reasoning as well and explain to Braden that real life came before the other stuff.

So we went out and began digging our potatoes. After an hour or so we were about a third of the way through when Braden starts in about how long this is taking and asked "Why did we plant so many?" I had to remind him that it was he and Caib that planted them. They must have enjoyed the planting because they just kept on planting, all by hand.

I think we ended up with about 400lbs of potatoes. Not a bad harvest after such a late start because of the extremely cold spring.

Mean while my little dog lounged in the sun. And all were so excited to be done.

They figured Chance had enough smile to prove it.
Notice the bags of potatoes they are sitting on. (one bag not pictured)

Looks good. Bet it feels good to have them all stashed away for winter. Tell the boys "Good Luck!!!" with their horse contest.

Tell Braden that the boys you are growing are even better than all those potatoes! :D

That does it, I'm making peas and new potatoes for dinner tonight.

I read all the posts I've missed. What an amazing life you live. Thanks for sharing it with us all.
