Sweet Potato Harvest

Clump of sweet potatoes

Last week we harvested almost a bushel of sweet potatoes and delivered them along with a gallon of white acre peas and a few okra and eggplants to the Kearney Center for use in feeding the homeless.  Cover crops have been planted in their place and in other rows which no longer have plants (buckwheat and black eyed peas).  Even when we go to the garden early in the morning, it is really hot and humid.  But faithful gardeners have been pulling weeds, planting cover crops, and spiffing up the garden.   We're ready for cool weather and a new planting season--soon we hope.
