This is a monster sweet potato!!!!!! I am not sure what it weighs but it is very heavy and measures 7" x 7". We have only dug up 3 plants and haven't found all the potatoes even on those. The color is a beautiful rose color. Not like the ones we got last year. We have so many more to dig...............can't think about it tonight!
It is getting late....but I wanted to tell you about our evening to night.......... it was quit eventful to say the least. Our youngest son was going to try to load up two of the steers. He thought he could do it by himself. He got two in and was driving to our farm and we were just leaving to go work on the fence we are building .....remember where we built the first one? We noticed one of the steers going out the back of the trailer.......oops!.......our son was slowing down to talk with us and didn't know that he fell out. So good that he wasn't going fast or the steer would have been hamburger. It looked a little comical. Son.......Dad........Mom........sister.......her horse...........and the Lord ...........that silly steer walked right back into the horse trailor after running us up and down the road.......in the field. Not kidding........I started praying out loud and he was kind of penned by us and he got climbed right up into the trailer. It was amazing...........we gave THANKS!
Last night we went down to the pasture........because the second momma cow had her little baby calf. She is so tiny. I didn't get any pic's but when I do I will put one up. Her momma has her pretty protected when ever we try to get close to the baby. The baby comes to our knees when she stands. Very sweet!
Look at this thing! Taylor's hand next to it. So big!!!!!!!
This was one sweet potato plant.....7 potatoes all together. Each of these were about 5" wide and 6" long. HUGE!
Here was our pile on the first 3 plants. You could use one on some of them and feed
our whole family. We can't wait to see what we will get out of the two rows.
Also on Sunday I went out to see the tomatoes in the garden...........they have tons of large green tomatoes still growing. We planted 40 bushes and they all have tomatoes still growing. WE wil bring them in and they will ripen during the winter months for us. We have done it every year and they do wonderful! Just have to keep them a little cool. Tressa always makes Green Relish.........it is so good on crackers. I ill have to put up the recipe. Do you have any produce left or are you putting anything up? Would love to hear!
