After a fairly successful summer of growing four different kinds of potatoes, we decided that next year we might try sweet potatoes instead. (Trevor wondered if the number of potatoes we harvested was worth the amount of space they took.)
Then my sister (hi, Sheri!) mentioned that she’d seen a picture of purple sweet potatoes somewhere online, and you know I was hooked. I’m excited to try something different—I just hope they’re not difficult to grow. I have a feeling that my online vegetable garden ordering might start pretty soon (and it hasn’t even snowed yet!).
So I started looking around a bit and found these:
Now, tell me—does this seem right up my alley or WHAT? I can see them in their straight (ok, not so straight, maybe) green rows already. . . . the white “Bonita,” the orange “Centennial,” and of course something wildly purple. Sounds like fun to me.
If you enjoyed the blog entry on the 16th about rabbit poop stats, you will perhaps be amused (or, again, disturbed) to know that the most recent phrase in regards to rabbits that helped someone find my blog was, “My rabbit poops on me.” Then, yesterday, it was “My wife, who is beautiful, finds piles of rabbit poop in our yard.” Seriously, people—is someone just having me on?
