This all began when Mom decided to save some earthworms from a bait shop.
Yes, she bought them, brought them home, fed them, they multiplied and
then she freed them in my raised veggie bed.
Then she continued to feed them with kitchen scraps.
Time passed and...
Viola! This whole bed was covered with Sweet Potato vines!
Yep, some of the kitchen scraps included cut off ends of sweet potatoes.
This is how much I had after harvesting just half the bed...
Pant! Pant! Even for a digger like me, that's a lot of digging!
When the whole bed was harvested,
my five gallon bucket was full! :D
Good thing I like sweet potatoes!!!
Sure hope the neighbors do too ;)
Mom says we'll be having sweet potato pie instead of pumpkin pie
for Thanksgiving this year :)
Waggin at ya,

One of our barrier islands about 30 minutes away from my home.
