Planting Taters!

Once again, yesterday was a very busy day. I met with an agricultural adviser in the morning to determine some up coming plans. The meeting went well. My mom and dad cut and prepared more seed potatoes for planting today. They also went through the canna roots and cleaned them and sorted them. I transplanted several flats of cabbage and cauliflower. I am a little nervous about putting them outside as the weather is getting colder. Today it is only supposed to get up to 54 degrees with 15-20 mph winds! A little chilly! Moreover, tonight we have a freeze warning. It is going to get into the upper twenties! What a change. I think I am going to move the cabbage inside for the night. I do not want to take a chance on losing them. Cabbage will stand a frost, but these are pretty tender. 

 Yesterday afternoon my dad and I went to look at a cultivator tractor. It was a 1948 International Harvester Super A. It is a beautiful tractor and we both beleive it will work for the farm. Dad told me that he started driving tractors at a young age and his dad had a B. This tractor is similar. Nonetheless, this tractor will be great for many tasks here at Bountiful Blessings Farm Produce; especially weed control without spray herbicides!

Later in the day my sister called and told me that I was in the paper. One of our local papers did an article on the farm. I was very humbled. Here is a link to the article:

Well, its off to another busy and cold day planting potatoes in the field. I pray that your day goes well.
