Even though we already had a pretty good harvest of these back a few months ago, there were still several in the ground, awaiting the second and final harvest. Pretty good for a little patch about one & 1/2 meter square!
Sweet potato is an excellent tropical permaculture crop. It is easy to grow, harvest, and store. Is a good “in the ground” source of calories, provides ground cover to prevent too many weeds from growing, and best yet, is a tasty dish served baked, fried, mashed, or really any way you cook it!
