Potato harvest, Presque Isle, 1982

Contributed by Maine Historical Society


Working against the calendar, Maine potato growers were in the field at dawn on September 20, 1982, as the annual potato harvest began in earnest. Summer drought periods slowed the growing of the spuds, but Linwood Gray of Presque Isle, on the tractor, reported his potatoes in "good shape."
