"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority ... the Constitution was made to guard against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." - Noah Webster

"There is no worse tyranny than forcing a man to pay for what he does not want just because you think it would be good for him."
-- Robert A. Heinlein

Potato Progress

Nothing makes me realize how fast the season is passing than looking at stuff grow.

I started the potato cage looking like this:

Then after the spuds sprouted, I began putting on the compost and leaves. The cage is 2.5 feet wide by 7 feet long by 2 feet tall.

As of today, June 8, 2011 I've reached the top of the cage with compost.  I guess if the potatoes keep growing they'll just have to drape over the sides.  It's just the beginning of June.  Where are these vines gonna grow to?

It's going to be interesting to discover how many potatoes are in there come the fall.
