not so sweet



in our first year of farming we have had some successes and some unsucesses. the sweets were nice but we suffered a big frost followed by several days of rain. bruised and split sweet potatoes aint a pretty sight. crying farmers aint a pretty sight either. oh well.

enough survived for us to determine what the best varieties will be for next year and oh boy are we gonna have fun doing a better job of soil preparation and getting them in way earlier.

so if ya take the good with the bad... the good has certainly been the potatoes. our fingerlings are simply exquisite and the best potatoes in the westholme valley!

That's good your fingerlings are competitive. It's one success, at least. --Teaternity
