We thought they were all this way. But Belle gave them a closer inspection and this is what she found!
|More than 15 pounds of sweet potatoes!|
And this is what we made for dinner!
|That's some of the apple wine we brewed this year. We weren't supposed to open it until December, but it's already very tasty!|
|Grilling sweet potato slices for a salad dish.|
|Grilled Sweet Potato Salad for the main dish with romaine salad as a side.|
Belle made Grilled Sweet Potato Salad with feta cheese, orange bell peppers, tomatoes and a bunch of other stuff. We thought we had eaten all our homegrown chicken, but we found one last piece that went great with this meal. We also had garden fresh romaine salad. And do you know what the best thing was about this meal? The kids liked it too!
Sorry, I'm not posting from home so I have no harvest totals this week. I would estimate we gathered around 25 pounds. We picked romaine lettuce, beans, sweet potatoes, jalapeno peppers,onions, carrots, tomatoes and a volunteer tube of potatoes that we didn't even know was in the garden!
