PEI is known as the potato capital of Canada. Our house happens to be very near one of the larger potato farms on the Island and we have several potato fields around us, so I have been able to witness what it means to harvest potatoes.
In some ways, it reminds me a lot of a typical Midwest grain harvest. There are huge pieces of equipment moving down the roads and through the fields. There are lots of trucks driving back to the farm with full loads and then back out to the field. They work until crazy hours of the night, especially when rain is on the way.
And yet it is very different. The equipment is completely different. The overturned soil is red, not the rich black top soil I am used to. I find it amazing to see how many potatoes they get out of the fields. It seems like the trucks come almost non-stop.
Even though it is a different kind of harvest, it is clear to see that the seasons change, even though the evidence may look a little different. It is a testimony to me of God's power and grace.
