89 Pounds of Sweet Potatoes!! This year our Shallowford Community Garden produced 89 pounds of beautiful (and ugly!) orange sweet potatoes - just shy of our all-time record of 92 pounds! Visit the table to share in this bounty from one 4'x8' raised bed!We had a wonderful time on Sunday, October 1, eating lunch, painting pictures, trimming vines (and harvesting leaves for Nathan's sweet potato greens recipe), digging tubers, weighing tubers.....getting dirty and laughing together!! It was a beautiful day! Thanks to Caleb, Winston, Ian, Lexi, Avery, Nathan, Susan Easter, Andy, Pat, Max, Stewart, Grace, and Janet for all their hard work! We had a contest to see who could predict the overall weight - Lexi, our winner, guessed 87 pounds - and the weight of the largest sweet potato - Avery correctly guessed 2 1/2 pounds! Check our our enormous potato displayed on the table (not for sale!!) and all the pictures and artwork!
Our garden year is coming to a close but you will still find peppers, beans, eggplants, and a few tomatoes at the table....collards, lettuce, savoy cabbage, chard, and kale will be available soon from our fall beds!! See you in the garden!!
