Diggin' Diggin' Diggin' (now with video)

Over the weekend, Doug and I decided to dig up the first mound of sweet potatoes to check how they were doing.  In Iowa, we would dig them right before the first frost; but with planting almost 2 months earlier than we did in Iowa, you need to harvest earlier!
Check out what we found...






Doesn't it look as though he is holding a field mouse and a rat by their tails?

The kiddos had so much fun helping us dig...and we came out with quite the haul!
Now...what are we going to do with all of these?
Until next time...

Oh wow!!! I do see some yummy goodness in your near future (I LOVE candied sweet potatoes at Thanksgiving!) I do have a favor to ask. Will you make a "sweet potato pie"? You know, like the song. I want to know if they are any good. I've heard they taste a lot like pumpkin!
