I've always liked the first part of October. Probably because it meant we were out of school for a week and a half or so for Spud Harvest. Yup good ole Idaho where you get time off to help with the harvest. In elementary school it just meant more play time, in high school it meant money making. I have to say working in the potatoes wasn't my favorite job but having drove potato trucks on my resume actually helped me in a job interview. They said it grabbed their attention and made my resume unique. So I'm grateful for potato harvest and grateful that I no longer drive potato trucks.

Speaking of harvest, I dug up some of the carrots we planted this year. They are delicious! Nothing like a carrot fresh from the garden. Brad's Dad complained about having to plant the carrots. Said they were too labor intensive but I think he's singing a different tune now that we are enjoying the bounty.
This carrot grew through some metal thing that was in the ground. Which I think is pretty cool.
