  • Sweet potatoes yield a bumper crop

    We are still eating from a fantastic harvest of sweet potatoes last fall.  
    I planted out about 25 organic slips purchased from Country Corner Greenhouse in Shepherdsville in late May and by early November we had four nursery crates full of one of nature’s perfect foods.
    Seven months and counting in storage with no spoilage is impressive.  
    We are down to about six sweet potatoes; just in time for a transition to other summer vegetables.
