August beginning

Once again I feel relieved
that Fortune favours fools,
or as a German saying goes,
"Die dümmsten Bauern
ernten die größten Kartoffeln."
"The dumbest farmers
harvest the biggest potatoes".

Sometimes a saying
can be a great comfort.

    1. Yeah, I like this saying very much. And fried in butter, sprinkled with rosemary, the tiny ones are a delight.
      Well, and there were, fortunately not only tiny potatoes. Considering the drought, so far we are satisfied with the potato harvest.
