Vimy Ridge Public School's potato patch (three rows on the right) on July 2. Potatoes have all sprouted and are doing well. Our weather last year was very dry. This year we've had over 100 mm of rain fall in the past week. This would be 2 months of rainfall in a normal summer. The surrounding wheat field is beginning to ripen. (Click on photo to enlarge.)
