Sweet potatoes

Surprise!  Despite the lack of posts this year, the garden does still exist. I still hope to write a sweet corn recap post as well, but will document the 2016 Sweet Potato harvest first.

Today I dug up the sweet potatoes and closed down the garden with this final harvest. So, how did they do?  Check the pictures below.

Nice, loose soil for the potatoes to grow in this year.

Middle row yield. Only two plants in this row, so harvest was lighter.

Yield from the third row. Had three surviving plants, but also got the least amount of sun.

  1. Yum! Your harvest looks fantastic, and I’m envious. Mine was smaller, but I think I started mine a bit late. I’ve been eating them, though – they are delicious. 🙂
