You Grow Your Own Food? Harvest 8-1-12

The haul

Taters! Not bad for volunteers from last year and some grocery story slips. I also grew these in shredded newspaper as an experiment. While it worked ok, the slugs got into and started to kill off the plants. So I harvested a bit early to save these taters.

Squash and beans

Tomatoes, an accidental beet pulled while weeding, and eggs.

  1. Yes, florida has the temp, and the good sandy soil too. never fertilize sweet taters either, they actually grow better in poor soil. they really are a weed with a suprise underneath! By the way, leave your stock sweet tater in the sand and you can keep pulling the slips off for a long time, it will just keep growing them back.
