Reviews from Our Community 

I planted potatoes for the first time and didn't know what to do about harvest. My daughter got right down in the dirt and showed me all she'd learned from you over the years. She harvested, cleaned and stored them beautifully! She refers to your lessons with joy and a sense of knowledge that allows her to accomplish some pretty cool things!
