Spring Potato Planting

  1. Note how less mechanized farming was just that short time ago, and this during the first really mechanized war. While it places me in the naive category, I can't help but think that something was lost in the full scale post war mechanization. Well, of course, one thing was definitely lost . . . we have a lot fewer farmers now.
