Sweet potatoes

Sweet potatoes, lots of sweet potatoes, we have successfully grown lots of nice big sweet potatoes. In past years the sweet potato harvest was an awful lot of work as we dug them with a spade; they dig hard. This year I bought a tool for the tractor that reaches underneath the whole bed and loosens the ground with out stirring the soil much. It was a much easier process. I am looking forward to parsnip harvest.
The big fall irish potato harvest will begin late next week or early the following week, depending on soil conditions.
We just had some really good white sweet corn for supper. This last planting is at its prime right now. Daniel
