Columbus Day and 2,000 views

It has kind of been a tradition the past 3 or 4 years to go the ranch on Columbus Day since I work at a Credit Union and get the day off.  This year Jared and Grandpa both went along.  We went to water the grass and also to dig up all of the potatoes.  We were able to get all of the potatoes out of the ground, it was a very dissapointing year.  We only got two small bags of red potatoes (minus what we have eaten when we go up there) and we did get 2 large bags of russets but they were mostly odd shaped and a lot of them were really small.  Due to the dry winter, spring, and summer it really affected our potato crop. 

We also watered our grass seed which we are now proud to announce does have some actual grass growing.  We have been going up there twice a week to water the area and we have just been hoping for some grass to start growing in.  We finally saw some results on Monday.  It was just a little bit but it was a welcome surprise to our trip.  Look close below and you will be able to see just a couple blades of grass we planted. 

We also reached 2,000 views this week!  Thank you to all who have been reading the blog.  Please email any suggestions to
