Our first attempt at growing Sweet Potato has been a huge sucess. I bought a Beauregard Sweet Potato from the Diggers Club in October and planted it straight away in a dedicated garden bed. I wasn't too sure when to dig it up but when I took a look at it last Sunday I realised I'd possibly left it too long. We had a huge mound of sweet potato errupting like a volcano out of the soil.
As you can see we had a couple of very very large sweet potato but the majority of the crop are a perfect size. In total we dug up 8.5kg !
Now it's time to look for those sweet potato recipes. We'll also cook and freeze a lot to have later in the year.
