A GREAT DAY FOR PICKING SPUDS—The Ade family farm on Kitty Ade’s turn continues to be an eyecatcher for drivers and pedestrians
in Conception Bay South. If it’s not the rooster following Jim Ade around the patch when he’s sowing seeds in the spring, it’s the
gratifying site of seeing people harvesting crops in the fall as they were here last Saturday. Busy picking potatoes are, from right to
left: Tony Batten, Jim Ade, his wife Louise and their son Liam, and Tony’s parents Ken and Diane Batten. The warm, humid summer
made for a banner crop of potatoes, said Ade, who planted a number of varieties including Atlantic pototoes, Chelur, New Brunswick
whites, as well as other varieties of blues, whites and reds. Craig Westcott photo
