Yes, We Have No Potatoes

    Not a very interesting photo; just a flooded field, but this field is the one where, back in June, members of McBride Community Garden spent an evening planting potatoes they were planning sell to raise funds.  Well, that isn’t going to happen now with the potato plants under water.

    This is the second year in a row where we lost the potatoes we planted, due to flooding.  Last year it was the enormous amounts of rain that caused the flooding.  This year it was the intense heat, melting the snow on the mountain tops that caused it.  

    Seems like that definition of insanity:  When you keep doing the exact same thing and expect different results.
