Grain harvest is over. The crop is stashed mostly in huge granaries positioned along the railroad tracks. When the time and market are right the contents will be loaded and shipped. Now nearly every farm in the area has tuned up and lined up their trucks. Harvesting equipment both old-- and new-- has been prepped, tested and primed. The huge cellars have been cleaned out and the loading gear put in place. Hundreds and hundreds of acres of russet potato fields have been cleared of vines in anticipation of a bumper crop. Idaho Potatoes to fry, bake, hash, mash, shred, slice, freeze, and whatever else, will soon be on their way to restaurants and dinner tables of the world. Local schools will be dismissed for at least a week so students will be able to earn a little spending money working in the harvest.
Gentlemen, start your englines.
