Thank Goodness, and Donna Koger, for this nifty canopy which kept us and the potatoes nice and dry on a rainy day! Randall, Mary Alice and Dylan–Randall’s son who was also a huge help.

Randall and Mary Alice with the other potato girl, Marian. We did a block buster business with many people walking up to take potatoes. Second day’s total brought us to over 12,000 pounds distributed including deliveries in the week to come.
