Dateline: 2 September 2007
Yesterday, Marlene watched the little girl again for the day. We made it a point to take her out to the garden and dig some potatoes from the seed she had planted. The potato plants have died off and some weeds have grown up on the hilled rows. But just under the soil there is a beautiful crop of homegrown spuds. Marlene worked the fork, I manned the camera, and the little girl picked the hidden potatoes as they came into view.
She thoroughly enjoyed herself and went home with a small pail of her own delicious Yukon Gold tubers.
