I haven't been in here much lately. Life has just kinda of gotten crazy. I had planted sweet potatoes in our raised bed and they just took over as I didn't have time to tame then or tend the other plants. This week, with my parents helping out after my wife's surgery, we decided it was time to harvest.
There is a total of 70lbs of sweet potatoes here! This is out of a 5x16 raised bed (most were in a 5x5 area!) With the largest over 7lbs! There are several in the 4-5lb range.
We have already baked three pies and had some roasted sweet potatoe medallions (delicious!).
My parents also had an abundance of bananas ripen at once so we also baked 8 loaves of banana bread!!
Sent my parents home with 7-8lbs, probably give several neighbors some, and I'm going to check with a local food bank or kitchen to see if they will take 30lbs or so. I think we can manage 30lbs ourselves. We do really like sweet potatoes. Casserole, pies, roasted etc. I wander if you can puree it and freeze it for pies later?
