    Finally got into the veggie garden today after weeks of neglect and was pulling out the large clumps of grass in the sweet potato patch when I partly uncovered a sweet potato so thought I might as well dig it out and what a beauty it is 1.7kg. Even with the super market shelves getting emptied we will be right for another week eating this big boy.
