Surprising Sweet Potato Crop

So excited to dig in the tubs and find some sweet potatoes!  Granted, probably not enough to justify the purchase of slips and certainly doesn’t include my labor, but i still had a harvest and that’s no small thrill for me!

That’s my sweet potatoes i grew!  Apples are from my father-in-law’s tree.  Using these to make that delicious Sweet Potato & Apple Marshmallow Casserole.
