Autumn has come and we are finally getting around to putting the garden to bed for the winter. It makes me sad to see it go.. There are a few lingering tomatoes that we are still picking at, the beets still need canning, but Dad dug the potatoes yesterday.
All the potatoes..
Including those crazy Georgia Jet sweet potatoes.
They seem to get bigger and bigger every year! Makes me wonder what is going on under those hills of vines on hot summer nights.
One weighed 3 pounds, the other 3.5 pounds.
I think we dug a larger one up last evening in the final hill. The cart was so heavy I could barely pull it to the garage. We were thinking of canning / freezing some.. due to the size.
...or you could just come for dinner..
I think one potatoe would feed a family of four??
