Farmer Joe was the best potato farmer in all of the
state of Idaho, maybe the best in the whole world. He took pride in his work and did
the best he could to grow the best and healthiest potatoes. He picked the best
potatoes to plant, and made sure to give them the freshest water and nutrients. He
made sure to clean them from pests, with a lot of work and as little harmful pesticides as
At harvest time, farmer Joe would spend his time making
sure that his potatoes were ploughed out of the ground in a proper way so that they
wouldn't get bruised or damaged. This season was a great season, lots of water and
sunshine, great weather, and very little pests or insects. Farmer Joe was looking
forward to a great potato crop.
Farmer Joe and his workers had a great potato crop but
they were not done yet. There was a big patch of land that was so hard that the
plough was not able dig it up. So farmer Joe decided to leave it till the next
The next day farmer Joe went to check that stubborn
patch of dirt, but when he stuck his shovel into it, he discovered that it was ONE BIG
potato that was covering the whole spot. This must be the biggest potato in the
world he thought. He had to sit and think of a way to get it out. But how
when he knew that this potato was bigger than a truck?!
Farmer Joe knew it was not going to be easy, but he had an idea. He decided
to start by...
...getting his tractor and putting a gigantic
spoon on the back of his tractor and getting 7 men to push the spoon up under the potato
and tie it to the tractor with a rope and pull it out of the ground.It broke into a couple
of pieces but it didn't really matter because the farmers wife was planing on making
potato soup for the whole community and she invited every farmer from 20 miles away to
have dinner with them.
Each family brought a dessert ,they had chocolate
pie,peanut butter cake,peach cobbler,blackberry pie,rice pudding,chocolate cake,cherry
pie,and all the desserts you could ever think of.It was the best dinner ever because one
farmer shared his one potato and it became a blessing.
