Good morning, Another wet morning on the Island.  Digging has slowed down a bit in recent days with some wet weather.  Thankfully the forecast for the rest of this week still looks favourable to getting some more days of digging in.  Next week looks to be...

Hi everyone, After a cold night, it turned into a great digging day today.  Morgan and I were out getting finished up on our first round of Living Labs soil sampling so that we can focus the rest of this week on finishing up potato harvest...

A wet and wild morning in PEI.  I hope everyone is staying safe and dry. As of 9 am, I’m seeing anywhere from 35 to 75 mm of rain in the last 24 hours, and it appears that we’ll have a pretty full day of rain...
