    Once again, we enjoyed sweet potatoes all winter long from a fantastic harvest last fall. I planted out about 25 organic slips purchased from Country Corner Greenhouse in Shepherdsville in late May. By early November, we had four nursery crates full of one of nature’s perfect foods. Seven months and counting in storage with no spoilage is impressive.

    We are down to about a dozen sweet potatoes, just in time for a transition to other summer vegetables.
