I'm off drinking tropical drinks in another country this Monday so no harvests today. I thought I'd show you what I put on my windowsill before I left for my trip. I got them from Russo's a vegetable store. (And don't worry by townhouse mates are watering them when needed so they won't die if they start to sprout.)
These are the old wizened men, looking out into the yard. According to one of the extension services in New England (I forget if it is NH or ME) if you buy an unlabeled sweet potato in the US it is most likely Beauregard and it is a good variety for New England.
These are my young women gabbing among themselves. They were labeled Garnet. So at least I know the variety. What I really wanted was a Georgia Jet as they are very fast maturing and produce very well in the north, but I couldn't find them. I might have to buy a few slips at some point. I'll see later. In fact if my slip production doesn't work (it is the first time I've ever tried doing this) then I still have plenty of time to put in an order for slips. If I end up really loving a variety I can just pot up a vine and bring it inside for the winter. I'm terrible with houseplants, but one can always try.
Harvest Monday is a day to show off your harvests, how you are saving your harvest, or how you are using your harvest. If you have a harvest you want to show off, add your name and link to Mr Linky below.
