Thanks to Suzanne MacDonald, many gardeners grew sweet potatoes for the first time. We started with uninspiring twigs and have ended the season with lush, beautiful waves of purple, green vines. The plants are starting to flower now, reminding us that sweet potatoes are in the morning glory family. Soon it will be time to harvest. I don’t know what is going on underneath those luxuriant vines but it’s been a pleasure to watch them grow. Check out the directions for harvesting and storing on our website.
