No rain here today :)

Managed to lift three rows of Desiree potatoes this morning. Very pleased with the crop.
Another two rows of Desiree, and two rows of Cara to lift :)

Perhaps tomorrow, depends how my back is feeling :lol:

Beautiful later summer's day here and especially nice after some rain overnight. The ground is still very dry, though. I dug up the finished calabrese plants yesterday and the soil just fell off the roots. and the field pond just outside the village is still dried up!
