Spuds planted and growing

May 08, 2007

The annual old-fashioned potato-planting event was held April 28 on the grounds of the Washington County Agricultural Education Center.

The event, sponsored by Friends of the Rural Heritage Museum, was coordinated by museum member Bill Poffenberger.

Linda and Max Reed of Downsville supplied a Belgian draft horse, 10-year-old Sally, to plow the furrows and cover the seed potatoes.

The Feed Bin supplied the potatoes.

Wm. Gower & Son supplied fertilizer.

Harvest time for the potatoes will be during Spudfest on Saturday, Aug. 25. The spuds will be made, on the spot, into potato chips to be sampled by those who attend.

The museum is at the ag education center, 7 miles south of Hagerstown off Md. 65.
