Sweet harvest

sweet potato harvest of 2011

Despite repeated deer attacks our sweet potato crop this year is 63% bulkier than last years haul.

78.5 total pounds which equals 9.8 pounds per bed.

I suspect all that horse manure and straw mulch gets most of the credit for the impressive increase in yield, but I also think Anna's green thumb had a major role to play in this year's production.
