All you need now is some butter. Looks good. I've never grew sweet potatoes but will be next year.

Best way I found is to make a ridge of dirt about 16+" high and about a foot wide at the top..  Plants you plants on the ridge.  Easy digging and gives them good drainage.

One can only EAT so many Sprouts would think! :D  Suprised they grew this late in season, not a gardener here, so don't know a thing about them.

Brussels Sprouts are great, I have picked them after the snow flies as they can take a fair amount of frost and the flavour mellows out. Nice sweet potatoes... mine have never filled out that well. Next time I'll try your hilling method, thanks.

Really like sweet taters. It has been over 40 years since I have tried to grow them definitely make a hill to plant them in.
