Sweet potato harvest!

Almost 3kg from this sweet potato harvest

Almost 3kg from this sweet potato harvest

Well, the sweet potatoes have been growing in the same spot for about three years, and I figured it was time to move them to another spot. It’s that thing called crop rotation where leaving the same plant in the same spot for too long means it will drain nutrients from the soil and deplete the soil vitality.

Anyway, we’ve started pulling up the vines and of course found more sweet potatoes to harvest. They were of all shapes and sizes, from skinny to oval to turnip shaped. There was one monster-sized one that made me wonder how it had escaped detection for so long! We haven’t pulled out everything yet but got a harvest of almost 3kg of sweet potatoes. That’s not too bad in my books!
