You ladies are too kind. I try not to take pics of the weedy jungle that is half of my garden. There is a part by the fence where the dreaded morning glory is growing but it's where the sweet potato vines have over taken so I havent bothered with pulling the morning glories.I know right? And here I am pulling weeds in the immediate area next to a few red tomatoes so I can photograph them.
I'm sorry to hear that! Maybe a different variety will do better for your climate? I have no idea what variety I have, i bought 2 organic potatoes from a grocery store 3 years ago and I have been growing from those each year. I plan to add a different variety next year. The purple ones have purple flesh and they are dense in texture but I love that smooth texture of traditional sweet tater I can use for casseroles and pies.I'd be happy to grow sweet potatoes and I've tried several times, Cosmo'.
Let's see. My harvested roots might have been 20% of the size of those you have in the picture. I may be exaggerating.
Being teased by those in the family who had grown sweet potatoes in different climates was brutal .
Me too! And, on a whim, I tried some the same way - from the grocery store.purple flesh and they are dense in texture but I love that smooth texture
The one with deep purple flesh? I've never tried it in a casserole, maybe I should. The dense texture scared me to try it.I've grown the purple ones before and they sure make a pretty casserole. I cubed up the purple and orange sweet potatoes instead of mashing them.
