You will see them @FISH and it will be something that you will remember for the rest of your life.  I was in a redwood forest some ten years ago.  There was complete silence there, something we don't experience in a town or city.  If you click on the photos they will become enlarged plus slightly clearer.

Oh Boy @Rikki Gins .
The moon was waning when he planted those taters. It is not good to try to grow something during the time of diminishing light. Diminish!!!!
On my Mom's side of the family, we respect the phases of the moon and potatoes. I often cure skin problems with a potato. The cure works best if the moon is in the Fourth Quarter -  half to new--Diminishing light (waning) and old crescent.
Family folklore. IF you need to fix a skin problem, cut a slice off a potato, figure out how to place it onto the trouble on your skin. Leave it be for several hours. Remove the slice of potato and bury it in the dirt.
I have grown second generation potatoes from the slice that heal my troubles. I don't think @anniem will approve of my Irish potato cure.
The Harvest Moon will be here soon.  :)
PS/ I'm not going to talk about the onion cure.

When they teach you how to weld, you are warned not to look at the glowing end of the torch without those tinted hoods, because if you do, you will wake up later on with your eyes feeling like fire.  If that does happen, you can take a potato and hollow it out so that it will fit over your eye and it will give you relief from the pain.

@Rikki Gins Wow! did you have to use a potato to cure your sore eyes?  The next time, my eyes hurt I will find a potato.

No, @FISH, that was a warning given during welding class, not to stare at the torch while welding something because it gets super bright and it will harm your eyes if you look at it without a welders helmet.  So I never did get sore eyes because I put a helmet on before welding something.  Also, those welding helmets are the best things to use during a solar eclipse.  You can look right at the sun without causing any harm to your eyes.

That military jet was flying over the garden again.

I wonder if the pilots knew they were being trailed by two small objects?

Mums from a Jersey farm. No more fresh corn or tomatoes. Now, they are selling fall flowers.

I'd say it was one of these rascals. @Uncle Duke to confirm?
