    Is it like picking pumpkins? You pay by weight?

    lol actually we are lucky and every year the farmer lets the community have this field. we pick till the field is free of taters.

    99% of the time we dont have to pay for our spuds, the farmers around here keep a cellar full just to give away [​IMG]

    oh and come on over, potatos are on me!

    That sure is a nice thing to do for the folks. A good Idaho baking potato with all the fixings is hard to beat.
