The weather was warm and the sun was shining today. With the ground dry, I decided to dig the sweet potatoes. I was tempted to give them another week, but the forecasted low temperatures next weekend are 30 degrees.
The first plant I dug today had two very large potatoes hiding under it. While none of the other plants were quite as grand, I did manage to get a sizable amount of potatoes from the ten plants. I decided to weigh this harvest and was surprised to see I have 24 pounds of sweet potatoes.
Guess I’m going to be on the lookout for some easy sweet potato recipes.
