Aroostook farmers welcoming the weather – Bangor Daily News

[Potato farming is big in Aroostook County, the county where I grew up. I even picked potatoes one fall break from school — it was cold, wet, muddy, back-breaking work. The local school district generally let kids out for a week or so at harvest time so farmers could have enough hands to pick their crop. Mechanical harvesters pretty much take care of that now, I suspect. — KM]
