Mother's Day Planting

For Mother's Day this year the "kids" took me out to a wonderful brunch at a local restaurant.

Afterward, we spent a nice afternoon at Grandma and Grandpa L's house planting onions and potatoes in preparation for fall harvesting.
(I say "we", but as it was Mother's Day I exerted my holiday rights and watched the proceedings from the comfort of the van and knitted a sock.)

Handyman put down some hay in between the rows, in hopes that it would cut down on the weeds.  (I have a suspicion that this was just an excuse to use the skid loader with the kids.)

Hopefully this year we'll have a better yield than last year!
