Harvest Time!

We dug our big, honking pots out in front of our store all summer. We had Hibiscus trees with pretty yellow flowers and below them, we had Sweet Potato vines. The Hibiscus looked awesome all year. The Sweet Potato vines took a while to take root, but they thrived in the heat of the summer (after our friends at Always the Garden saw us at the Best of Delaware Party and reminded us to keep watering the plants!). The overflowed out of the pots, hanging over the sides. It's funny, cause even though Emily told me they were Sweet Potato vines, I just kinda assumed they were ornamental. But, as we pulled them out today, we found lots of little and some big Sweet Potatoes! Mashed sweet potatoes, anyone?
