5 1/2 yo granddaughter was here this weekend so decided she might like to help in the garden. Usually wants to help us with anything we are doing. We headed for the garden with her RAM with trailer in tow. Her and Grandma found a pail of green peppers to start with. Then we dug two 30' rows of Pontiac potatoes. We pulled the onions about 10 days or 2 weeks ago and had them laying on wood pallets to dry. Gathered them up and added to the load. No photos of this operation as it was hot and we were all sweating and dirty.
This morning the potatoes were dried off to get them sorted, bagged and into the basement. Harper picked out 4 or 5 for her mother to bake. She also got a bunch of the gold ball sized one for her eating. First pic is her holding a baking potato. She loves her, used to be my, hat.
Black pail is the damaged potatoes and the white pail is the small one we boil whole. The two large burlap bags full will be our winter eating.
For supper she wanted her favorite, hot dogs on the grill with a fresh roasting ear of sweet corn. One long ear and 2 hot dogs later she was full. Slept for 11 hours last night. This morning she wanted waffles for breakfast so Grandma fixed us waffles. She ate 3 with butter, peanut butter and syrup. At 9:30 she wanted a snack. I told her there were a couple waffles on a plate yet. Next thing I know she is eating another waffle.
When grandma was going to pick her up yesterday morning, I took out 125' of fence. 3 barb wire and steel post. Neighbor ground is in CRP for the next 10 years so no fence needed and easier to keep mowed up and looking better. As usual she had to help load things up yesterday afternoon. I loaded the wire and she loaded the steel post, one at a time, about 15 of them. Then she carried them to me in the pole building to put up on the rack. Works like a beaver over here but at home ? ? A whole different story.
