Anthill of Floyd Elementary Potato-Diggers

Potato Frenzy at Floyd School Farm from fredfirst on Vimeo.

This image quality is not the best, but the Hyperlapse exposure at 6x normal speed gives you an idea of the energy of these kids yesterday at the Floyd County school garden on 221.

And I have questions: what is required to show young children in public places like a blog? I think parents signed permissions but not sure so won’t post images not blurred by super-speed!

[There is no sound since audio compressed to 6x would only be comprehensible to a trucker on energy drinks.]
