With The Harvest
Yesterday was the country version of downtown peak hour as harvesting continued apace across the north west. Poppy, onion and potato growers were in full swing as we dropped in on Matt, Trisha, Holly and Bonnie in Thirlstane to pick up their freshly harvested onions and potatoes. Matt took us to the paddock where harvesting of Ranger Russet potatoes was in progress. Hil climbed on board, inside the harvester, while Barn picked out 100 kilos from the bins for today's hibarn boxes. Can't get fresher than that! Matt says this variety is especially good for chipping and roasting.
