    @Bogtown Chick What did your Grandpa say about the red and white potatoes?
     
  3. Try making them think you or judy are going to feed them a treat and then have the other person snap the photos.

    My plan is to let him out with about 3-4 hens and no other toms. I think that will get me the picture I want.

    What a drive home! I left Shakopee at around 5:30 . Took about 2 hours and 20 minutes to get home.

    South of 394 was a large rush of air into a vacuum. Really badly rushing air..

    It was better north of 394, I could make almost 30mph there.

    It was my Dad-- but he's a Grandpa so that's ok. Lol. But he liked the Kennebecs because their skins came off so thin and nicely. He likes their flavor best as well. But he did not know about the sprouting factor and said he learned something as A 70 year old. Lol.

    His Dad- my Grandpa -would plant two rows of potatoes the whole length of the corn field! Then he'd get my mom to ride the potato digger and the two of them FIL and DIL would pick potatoes and sell them for $2 a gunny sack. Mom said she was just filthy after doing all that. They'd keep what they needed and sold the rest. Dad said by spring the kannebecs did have some sprouts started which the rubbed off and then they'd cut the seed potatoes before planting ensuring each piece had at least 2-3 eyes before planting.
