One Down One To Go.

Had to go down to the kitchen garden to dig up some potatoes, lift carrots and a turnip, was shocked to discover a number of potatoes littered over the two raised beds. Looks like they've been pecked so can only think the blasted crows have decided to attack them. Went to locate some paper sacks and started digging finished off one bed, one bag full along with a large trug load. Into cook lunch and asked for some help to lift the other bed couldn't believe my ears when David our 2nd son informed me he wouldn't have a clue on digging potatoes. Did manage to get him to lift the sack load of King Edwards into the basement for storage, hopefully if weather's good I'll get the rest lifted tomorrow more King Edwards and Marius Piper. Another job I need todo is remove withered foilage and roots from the onions that are on racks in the shed and move them to the basement for storage as well. Weather permitting I'll go out to pick blackberries, crabapples and elderberries to make some jam this weekend no point in missing such free delights also need to pick blueberries off Jacinta's bush well the one she gave me last year blueberry muffins on the menu yummy.
