(225 varieties to choose from)
Please note all photos were taken in April and the sweet potatoes were dug in early October. This is to give an indication of the storage capabilities of each variety. All of our written descriptions are made from freshly dug roots in October and as the roots age colors change on many. The skin surfaces become duller and the flesh colors yellow in white varieties. All of these photos were taken on the top of a freezer underneath grow lights in the basement where the roots are stored. We are still working with the program as some appear fine on the view screen and then do not show up online the same way.
We are very sorry for all of the unavailable varieties. On August 9,2020 we tilled between the rows in anticipation of an upcoming rain storm. As we plant on black plastic and our soil is very sandy it makes planning for tillage before a rain a necessity to make the best use of the moisture. Our soil is quirky and if not disturbed after a rain will actually hold the moisture down a few inches very well but if tilled after a rain will wick out the moisture quickly. On August 10 we had a Derecho or land hurricane that gave us 100 mph winds for close to an hour and the devastation was great. We were blessed with no lost buildings or livestock but many all across the state lost homes, buildings and had near total devastation. Our worst damage was the areas where I tilled the day before and the loose sand was picked up by the wind and ripped the plastic out of the ground and literally rolled the plants up like you would roll up a soft shell taco . We lost many sweet potatoes and tomatoes and peppers. Where we have a supply of sweet potatoes they were planted in another section that had not been tilled and they did very well. We will work overtime to try to get things all back to normal for 2022. We sure hope we do not totally lose any varieties.
