1917.

17

April + May.


after continuous labor every night

weekends + holidays, we at last

finished the setting of potatoes

on Saturday May 19th 1917.

"Thank Heavens" what a task.

Talk about our children asking

father what he did in

the great war, when he is just

having his tater pie. There

comes before him a vision of

twisted sods, dibblers, and

emaciated seed potatoes before

his eyes when he is aroused by

mother asking, does he want

any more taters.
