A big thanks to my buddy Dave for picking up a pack of Sweet Potatoes for me this past weekend. I finally got a chance to get them planted in the garden last night (just in time for the cool, low 40s night time lows). Unfortunately, I left them outside the castle walls for one too many nights and the blasted bunnies chewed off most of the leaves on two of the nine plants. They all still had at least one leaf left, so I planted them anyway in the hopes that they can recover.
After giving the Georgia Jet variety a try last year, I am back to Beauregard again. Mostly this is because this was the variety that was available locally but also due to the rough and cracked skins of the potatoes last year. They tasted fine and certainly grew quite large, but they were a bit of work to get the skin all peeled before cooking.
