The Great Potato Give Away

Posted by ryanjackson on Sep 26, 2009 in photos |

100,000 pounds of free potatoes sure draws a crowd! I waited in line for over three hours to get into Norbest Farms on Saturday. Right when I was almost inside a kid on an ATV came up and said that they had run out of potatoes! Oh No!

I parked my car in the ditch and got a ride with the kid up to the front of the line where the last few potatoes were being plucked out of the ground.
