Sweet Potato Harvest

In the midst of the farm's fall chores last week was the harvest of the sweet potato trials.  OSU-Stillwater brought a potato digger to the farm and helped us to harvest our sweet potatoes.  

  

The tops of the sweet potatoes must be removed before the potato digger goes through the field.  Otherwise, the green tops will jam the machine. 

Our one and only, Steve Hill, covered in weed-eaten sweet potato tops.

This is our abundant crop of harvested sweet potatoes.  We have two varieties of white sweet potatoes and three varieties of orange sweet potatoes.  This will help us determine which varieties to grow in the future.

The sweet potatoes must be cured before they are ready to eat and store.  We look forward to bringing you these sweet gems just before Thanksgiving.
