Worked on some of these sweet potatoes today. One 5-gallon bucket full made 14 qts. of canned taters. Still have 5 more buckets full, plus a galvanized wash tub full. Oh, my!!! That'll be a BUNCH of canned taters! I'll give some fresh ones to my folks, the in-laws, and a few other GOOD friends, but most of them will get canned and put on the shelf.

I'll have to try that. I do like fried sweet potatoes!

As of now, the only things left growing in the garden are some tomatoes, okra (production has slowed way down due to the cooler weather), pole beans (2nd crop is starting to bloom), and acorn squash (lots of blooms and small squash). After the long, hot summer, we just might get some decent tomatoes. Depends on when the first frost gets here. The forecast low this morning was 37, not sure it made it quite that low. Currently 44. Doesn't look like it'll get that cool again for awhile.

Almost forgot: there's one big volunteer jalapeno pepper plant that is LOADED with peppers. It did better than the ones I planted!

The only tomatoes I got were two the size of your thumb. But I have one bell pepper plant that is loaded right now. Onions are coming back up, might get a few of them.
