Sweet Potatoes

I just wanted to share a couple of photos of our late autumn surprise sweet potato crop. We thought we'd lost the whole bunch since the ducks had taken to sleeping in the garden area where we planted the slips. Plus, they ate all the flowers. Then one day in December during all the rains I noticed some strange orange rocks in the garden. But no! Not rocks, sweet potatoes! I dug up two 5-gallon bucket loads. They have been mighty tasty, especially mashed with some Yukon golds, a hung of butter and cream. Mmmm....
