Finally.....









Harvest comes to an end today! Thankfully!! It's been a long season. My husband Reid is a potato farmer and today all the potatoes will be out of the ground and tucked away in storage waiting to be processed. They had approximately 700 acres of potatoes this year. Reid provided our son Jordan an opportunity to farm with him. I was happy that Jordan would be living at home for a few months, but sad that he would not be in school. Jordan and his cousin James had their own circle of potatoes and named their adventure 'JBizzle Farms'. Since the beginning of September they have been up at dawn and home long after the sun goes down harvesting the potatoes. We are feeling grateful for a good crop and happy prices are up. I feel very blessed to have such a hard working husband who loves his family and works so hard to provide for us, and even happier to think I may occasionally see him now. And very most happy that when harvest is over Jordan will FINALLY shave his beard.

That must be so satisfying to see those crops start out so small, then to watch them grow so full and tall. That's a lot of work!

p.s. I said to Kelly "did you know Danielle is pregnant?" He said "yes, I"m so happy for her." I said "thanks for telling me."

I guess I'm just glad you have a blog so I can find things out for myself! The other method isn't working.

Be sure to post a picture of Jordan after the shave. We don't want to scare off his future wife who might have trouble seeing how handsome he is behind all that stubble (I mean beard!). Hope those potatoes are valuable. Those hard working guys deserve it!
