potato planting

A couple of weeks ago Jessica and I spent a day planting potatoes. I borrowed a furrow maker from a friend and we set to work... No-till potatoes aren't really possible! We added a potash material to help boost the alkalinity of the soil, along with some potassium (the black stuff in the picture). 
I drove the tractor while Jessica shoveled the potash from the bucket into the furrow.  
Somehow I managed to get the stuff all over my face!
