sweet potato

There are lots of potatoes, 6-7 varieties, in the ground. We planted some while it was quite cold out, some a few weeks later and continue to plant. Beds are full, so new beds might need to be made!

Sweet potatoes, more sensitive to cold, are planted later in the season. They love hot and dry conditions so they did not go into an irrigated vegetable bed but instead went right into the compost bins with finished compost. It is done cooking, rich with organic matter, elevated so it will dry out earlier and stay warmer. 100 days until plucking, we are counting the days. The kids will be back in classrooms. The teachers too.
