I pulled up the sweet potatoes. I got almost 20 pounds worth. They were huge (and did I take pictures? N0). Sweet potatoes are the easiest thing to grow. Stick the slips in the ground in the spring, pull sweet potatoes out of the ground in the fall. I'm trying something new this year. I planted some winter wheat. We'll see if anything comes of it. The idea planting it like you plant garlic. You stick it in the ground in the fall. ignore it over the winter, it will grow a little in the fall and continue growing as soon as possible in the spring and be ready for harvest in early summer.
