Yesterday we harvested our first of four rows of sweet potatoes (about 100 lbs). These Carolina Ruby sweet potatoes grow exceptionally well in central North Carolina even when we have a dry summer like this year. We will keep them in the garage (covered and damp) for about 2 weeks to cure, at which point they will be ready to eat or store in the house for up to 6 months.
FYI, today I have a guest post at Robb Wolf’s site called The Grass is Greener, but the Weeds are Taller. In this post, I outline some of my plans for the farm now that my days are a bit busier with the new website My Athletic Life. Please take a peek at my guest post as well as the new site if you have time.
Thanks for reading!
