Details

I have a huge sweet potatoe patch, 18 foot diameter. It is an experiment of mine, this is the first time I've have ever done this. If everything happens as I've planned, there should be over 300 pounds of sweet potatoes. There will be work to do if you want to take some home. You can just come out and watch if you'd like. I am not charging anything for this, but donations are welcome! It may be a total failure, but I did pull some out for Amanda a few weeks ago.... We'll just have to see, won't we?! This is the video that inspired me to try this, and yes, I even have a wattle fence around the patch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TTcXhYHmOx8 So, come out to the farm, spend the day exploring a crazy cool food source and learn some of the things I've learned. Many of you know me, I like to share information. Hence the 4 hour time frame! PLEASE! SOMEONE COME AND TAKE PICTURES!!! I will personally pick your 'taters! This needs to be documented, and I will be to busy to do so. If you have a need to, call me,[masked] iggy. …………________________________...……... Hey all, just to let everyone know, the weather is being very unpredictable, but it is time to dig up the crop! So, if we get some rain we're gonna get muddy! Bring some cardboard boxes to take your sweet potatoes home, you will also cure them in those boxes. There will be a lot of discussion on such things. Also, bring containers for veggies, I still have tomatoes and peppers available! Maybe some squash, I haven't checked.. NO ONE SHOULD BE HUNGRY!!!! it's so easy, I can teach you. Along with some of our members (I'm not at the stage to teach canning) you can learn to preserve the bounty. so, come out, plan on getting muddy at worst, dirty at best, and experience a wonderful food source. Oh, bring a lunch, I will be too busy to cater this event. we can get a couple pizza's delivered. I will have well water and a couple "pops" available.
