Farm Happenings for July 28, 2020

Posted on July 23rd, 2020 by Shiloh Avery

I was always told that the “definition of insanity” was doing the same thing but expecting different results.  Whoever coined that phrase never farmed, I think.  Because in my experience the opposite is true.  Take potatoes, for example.  Last year everything went so perfectly and we had a fantastic potato year.  So naturally, we did exactly the same thing as last year but definitely did not get the same results.  I mean, same varieties and seed potato source, same planting date, same everything! But this year was a terrible potato year.  Sigh, it’s enough to make me feel insane.
