It’s that time of year .. the sweet potatoes are ready to be dug. I went out last night to dig two potatoes for dinner and there are so many out there, I ended up unearthing three in the process of trying to get two!
Of all the things we grow, I think sweet potatoes may be one thing that tastes the most different from anything I can buy locally. They are just so good and we will eat them almost every day. I’ll make a few sweet potato pies,which I would rather have than pumpkin pie. Hopefully there will be enough to get at least a few pints of sweet potatoes canned.
The rest of the day’s garden bounty . . a few red onions, tomatoes, okra, peppers, eggplant and 14 eggs. Two little bantam eggs on top . . that we managed to get before the greedy mamas took them to add to their nest! The okra was cut yesterday morning and those few pods either grew since morning or I had my eyes closed while cutting okra in the morning. The veggies are getting fewer and fewer. We need to pull everything out and get ready for the fall planting but just haven’t had the time.
