The grandkids have been having loads of fun this week diggin' up Big Papa's sweet potato crop! It's like a treasure hunt-- literally-- digging in the rich soils to reveal a boatload of these organic, homegrown, tuberous roots! And would you look at that whopper tater? It weighs 8 lbs!
Mike thinks that the key ingredient that contributed to a mammoth harvest of sweet potatoes this year might have been adding rock phosphate to the soil. It is a natural product mined out of Columbia, Tennessee
