Back on the Farm

We’re home.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in France.┬áIt was a great vacation–our first in over 12 years. I’ll probably blog more about the trip in the future.

We’ve been busy trying to catch up. There’s a reason farmers don’t take vacations in the summer.

I’ve spent much of the last two days harvesting sweet potatoes. We have a bumper crop this year.


I’ve harvested about a thousand pounds so far, and I’m only half done.


Occupational hazard. Black widows like the sweet potato garden.

I wish I could say the same for all of our fall crops, but that’s how it goes. I have no grounds to complain about anything these days.

This summer will be a tough act to follow. But I’m looking forward to a great fall.
