Today we planted potatoes. I have never, not even when I was younger, planted potatoes. So, I really have no idea if they will make it or not. I hope so, cause potatoes are one of my favorite things! I had read about people growing potatoes in trash cans and tires. We put ours inside a big set of blocks. Then we will build the blocks up when we need to add dirt to it. We'll be learning as we go.
It was dark as we were finishing up and I started hearing the whippoorwills. I love listening to them. I have never saw one, they tend to hide, and I only hear them calling at night. I found this picture of one on the internet. They are pretty and look like they would blend in with the woods good.
We also heard something more ominous. Coyotes! I have thought I heard them before, but, I wasn't sure. This time I could definitely tell it was a coyote. It was kinda scary cause it sounded like it was coming closer and closer. So, we took that as a hint to come inside for the night. The guineas were a hollering. I don't think they like the coyotes, either. Hopefully, they will still all be safe and sound in the morning.
