I trusted that information.
I put 12 half dead plants in the ground and waited. By mid summer, they appeared to be doing well and I had a bit of confidence that they would survive.
Survive they did.
We harvested all of them yesterday and gleaned a plethora of sweet potatoes.
Our bounty spilleth over, and that is a good thing because our family goes through lots of sweet potatoes.
Scroll to the bottom and you will find a video of my husband pulling out our biggest sweet potato. It was a nice score!
P.S. - notice all of us wearing lots of cold weather articles of clothing, my son in a big puffy jacket and his dad's beanie, my daughter in a jacket, and myself....well I had on my long sleeve shirt, my husband's long sleeve shirt, a jacket....and a scarf.
Yeah...I don't get along with this weather much.
Then there is my husband...wearing a t-shirt....and that's it. A ripped one at that.
Sigh. I don't know how he does it.
