Sweet Exuberance

This is what I see every day when I go out the front door:



The sweet potatoes are actually planted in what is about a 6x3 foot arc of garden to the right of the bird bath. As usual with happy plants, they've spilled out all over.

I have another week or two to enjoy the craziness, but I plan to harvest them a little earlier than usual this year. I tend to wait until the middle of October, but we've hardly had rain the last several weeks, and the watering has been taking some time. I would like to be able to limit my watering efforts to the fall crops, which would make my evenings after work a little easier.

  2. Ha! You are a better woman than I am. My poor garden has been getting watered just three days each week. It's probably a miracle that we've gotten so much food out of it!
