Nick looks like your potatoes did well. We haven't dug ours yet only some to eat on . We use a potatoe plow.

Was a nice day for diggin' taters. Looks like you got a good yield. :D
That's the way we dug taters when I was young, other than Dad had a horse drawn double shovel pulled behind an 8N.
So, one of us got to walk behind and guide it along. 'Course we planted 200 lbs or more of seed taters in a half acre patch.
You've got a nice looking place, and great soil for growing taters. I like your tractors too, but I'm guessing you don't use the
630 much past dark with the grill gaurd that's on it. ;)
