Weird Little Sweet Potatoes, From Slips to Dinner

Hello!

Remember when I told you about our sweet potatoes?

We grew them in two containers on our back porch.

They came out very small, and weirdly shaped.

Today we peeled and cut,

After baking for forty-five minutes,

it’s very good.

From botany project to dinner dish, this was a fun project. Every child (save Patrick) took part in planting, caring for, harvesting, and then preparing the potatoes.

Aidan and Bee are planning on changes for next year to try to get a larger crop.  🙂
