Wordless Wednesday - Digging Potatoes

The boy's loved digging for potatoes!
 A potato hand-off.
Working together.
Isaak called the potatoes, "Tomatoes" over and over again! ;)
Mica's into dressing up. He wants to look, "Handsome" everyday, all the time! Frustrating for me because he has all kinds of fun t-shirts in his closet. I found this t-shirt at Crazy Eight. It's both a t-shirt, and has a tie on it. Perfect combo!
Daddy found this gardener snake.
We had 2 buckets of potatoes by the time they were done digging.

Enter my latest giveaway for Organic Tropical Traditions Brown Rice Syrup!

Amanda said...

That is so awesome! The boys are having fun and learning at the same time. I remember digging potatoes with my Dad when I was little. It was so much fun! And then you get to eat fresh potatoes for a WHILE!

We have never grown potatoes, but we have grown tomatoes. After trying my tomatoes this week I remembered what tomatoes are supposed to taste like. yum
Your photos are great. fun family time. And I love the shirt with the tie.

Grandma Bonnie said...

I have tried to grow potatoes a few times. They never do well. Our soil is to hard for potatoes. Those look like nice potatoes. The photos are great. The boys look like they are having fun.

What huge potatoes. What a great job they did. EEEK, a snake. That would have kept me out of the garden, lol.

What I Did Today said...

Were the boys impressed by the snake? Ash is afraid of slugs. Mica's t shirt is awesome. I learned that if you want edible hash browns, you have to COOK the potato before grating it.

I grew potatoes once..until I realized it was a lot less work to buy them..lol
love tthat shirt with the 'tie'!

Alicia said...

I can't believe you have potatoes already! That is amazing!

Good Girl Gone Green said...

It's nice seeingn kids getting involved in gardening and knowing where their food comes from! Fun!

Buckeroomama said...

How wonderful that the kids got to do that! I know of some kids when you ask them where certain veggies come from, they'll tell you they're from the supermarket! =)

How fun! I have never dug for potatoes. Next year we are going to try to grow some things, but I do not have a green thumb:)

Your son is adorable look at him in his fancy tshirt w/tie just think he may want a big fancy job to wear suits at when he gets old and make lots of $$

That looks like fun and I love the tie t-shirt. But I have to tell you that if I had found that snake along with those potatoes, that would have ended it for me right there...no more potato digging for me! :O

We have around 50 mounds to dig up at my grandparents' farm sometime soon. The kids always have a great time, but it's a lot of work for the adults! :)

Rose said...

I wanted potatoes this year but somehow we never got them planted. It all looks like so much fun, even finding the snake.

Xmas Dolly said...

SNAKES - EEEK! I sure do love your garden though. I'm so jealous! Don't have anyone around to help me pick & bend over to take care of it, so I just use pots & put them on tables where I can reach them. QUESTION. Maybe you can answer this. My tomatoes are getting a black circle on the bottom (I call it jungle rot - hehehe). Can you tell me how to get rid of that???

Veronica Lee said...

I'm not a fan of dirt either but this looks fun!

Chintan said...

Everything was fun till I saw that snake photo :( eeew! I can not stand crawling creatures at all...and am so scared at the moment....sigh!!

But I loved the T shirt idea...I wish they have similar stuff for girrls :D

Michelle said...

How fun! What great things you're teaching your kids. I might have flipped out over the snake, though. Isn't it funny how kids have their own style? And sometimes it becomes soooo much to them. Thanks for linking up with us!

My Journey With Candida said...

I planted some potatoes this year. I know it is a little early but hopefully they will make it.

They were growing in the basement so I figured I had better get them in the ground.
