Sweet potato rotation

Weeding around young sweet potatoes.Remember when I planted broccoli, swiss chard, and sweet potatoes in gaps in the garden? Wednesday, we finally got around to checking up on them, pulling out dying peas and weeds.  I was surprised to discover that our young plants were all growing beautifully!

Of course, there were some gaps where the peas had been.  So we filled in the gaps...again.  Still, this has been a very effective rotation --- I'll have to remember it for next year.
