Looking like the worst of the hurricane will stay south of us here in central Al. we had time this morning to dig the sweet potatoes. Planted 50 plants. Got a nice harvest. Just started raining here. Light breeze. Texted " Grayrider" he ain't been on here in a while.... Says it's "nasty, nasty, nasty" at his place. 45-50 miles north of the Gulf. The cub made 3 trips!

I grew some here in KY a few years ago and had good crop of Beauregards. Excellent tasting compared to the ones in stores. They went down hill from there and didn't grow any this year.

Looks like a real good yield. I like eating them, but with our climate we must not be able to grow them as I never hear of anyone growing them around here. It's like growing cotton up here. It just does not happen.

Check out grocery stores a week or two before Thanksgiving they usually have them on sale cheap.

Nice looking crop! I'm surprised that you're digging them already. Up here in Southern Illinois, we're holding off for about two weeks before we dig ours.

We have then under a lean to at the barn. They will cure for 4-6 weeks. Then we wil store them in the pantry off the kitchen. Cool and dark in there.

I like sweet potatoes much better than Yams. I raised some Yams here a few years ago, and decided to go to the store and buy sweet potatoes. They were cheaper than I could raise them here in Michigan, and tasted much better....Nice crop!

Looks good Kevin. I never met a sweet potato I didn't like! I planted some in an old stainless steel kitchen garbage can the wife was throwing out but planted them late so I may not harvest them for another few months.

Do you let them age before eating? They get a lot sweeter in a couple weeks
