Hilling Potatoes

"Many hands make light work"....I heard this quote on Adventures in Odyssey and it is so true. We all went out to the garden last night and hilled the potatoes.Then we packed the plants with cotton burrs. The work was tiring but satisfying.
It's nice being able to use the cotton burrs in the garden, we have been slowly making a dent in our huge pile.
As we reached the bottom of one end of the cotton burr pile we noticed it has already begun breaking down and turning into dark rich compost!
