Hello Evelyn,

Thanks for your input on the growing and harvesting of potatoes; always good to 
receive insights from a researcher residing in Co. Tyrone; your time employed 
in a heritage museum allows us to benefit from your research and experience of 
working amongst the relics and records of times gone by.

All researchers residing outside Northern Ireland value your insight on this 
and also your generous transcriptions of the 1703 Archbishopric of Armagh 
estate lease books (Ashe Manuscripts)

Ron's description of the joys of planting and picking potatoes is an excellent 
record of the task and backache involved before mechanisation.  If only more 
people would record their memories like this.

However most people in early 19th century Ireland were only growing smaller 
quantities for the use of their families, perhaps an acre or two at most, and 
not on a commercial basis.  With families to assist, it was not a particularly 
time consuming task, especially during the growing season in summer.
