Tonights Sweet Potato Harvest
Some pictures from tonight's Sweet Potatoes Harvest.
If you have never dug sweet potatoes, it is like opening a present. You never know what is inside.
This year we grew our Sweet Potatoes under black plastic landscape fabric.
Here is a picture of what they looked like before I started to dig them. This variety is Georgia Jet.
First we cut off the vines.
We dug 8 hills tonight. Here are 4 hills in this row.
Next we pull back the fabric and drip tape.
Now time for the digging. Sometimes it feels more like excavating!
Here is the haul from this hill.
I pulled back and took this picture. You can see a potato growing over and out of the next hill.
Repeat for the other hills, then you are all done.
How about this 80 pound harvest.
Only 3 more Varieties to go.
