Summer Officially Ends

Post  Chopper on 12/8/2010, 9:22 pm

Here is the last of the summer harvest. I pulled out the sweet potatoes and got one last eggplant. I guess it is really winter. I was thinking of planting a tomato seed under a 2 liter bottle cloche directly into the soil on the winter solstice - since they are day length sensitive Very Happy I have nothing to back me up on that and thought I would use the 2X2 where the sweet potatoes were for one or two plants. We shall see.

The SPs were interestingly aggressive. The biggest ones were deep (I have my box on top of lawn) and a couple grew under the frame and out the other side.

The pick:

Your sweet potatoes

Post  ander217 on 12/9/2010, 8:36 am

I'm drooling over your sweet potatoes, Chopper. Our harvest was a total bust this year. Do you plan to grow them again?

Absolutely. It took forever to get a slip to grow, though, so I will start that earlier.

I may have to move before summer but if it works the next people may be happy to have it. Very Happy
