Potato Planting Par-Tee 2010!

It's that time of year again...Time to get planting potatoes!
We have 1300 lbs of gorgeous seed, and if the weather and the tractors cooperate, well the fields will be ready!  Now we just need able-bodied helpers...
We will be meeting this Saturday, April 24th, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.,  or thereabouts.  At the farm, 399 S. Ebey Rd. in Coupeville.  Drive up the lane and park in front of the big white Victorian.  We will break for lunch, bring a sandwich or something of the like, we will provide a big farm salad, a dessert and loads of drinks.
If you are interesting in helping out this year, we would love to have you.  A few requirements for the job to be aware of:
* Ability to carry 10 to 20 lbs...
* Okay with several hours of walking back and forth in a field!
* Some slight bending
* Not bothered with getting dirty!  You will get dirty!!!!

All volunteers receive a coupon for a free 10 lb bag of potatoes once they are available in the fall (one per family please). 
If you would like to attend, please email me to RSVP.  We like to have a crew of no more than 25 folks (otherwise I can't keep up with you all!).
Also, I need a contact for you in case we get "weathered out!"
Hope to see you there!

P.S.  These photos were from last year's "Potato Planting Par-tee!"  Good times had by all!
P.S.S.  We are also looking for a "small crew" of helpers for Friday afternoon to cut and prep the potato seed.  About 2 to 5ish....If you are interested send me a quick email.
