Two weeks into our fall garden and boy am I impressed with all of its progress!
The sweet peas are slowly starting to make their way up our netting.
And last but certainly not least for the updates this time around are our sweet potatoes. They have been the quietest of the plants this whole season! No flowers, you can’t see the fruit or veggie growing, no real bug problems….About the only thing they have manage to do is take over one whole side of the garden. I NEVER knew how much room they require due to their wondering vines. We’ve actually been doing some research and have decided that next year we’re going to grow all of our sweet potatoes in hanging pots. Not only will that provide us with more room but also beautiful hanging plants because they have a great vine!
Anyways, back to what I was getting at. We walk out to check on the garden this morning and this is what we see:
A BEAUTIFUL flower coming from our sweet potato vine. After rushing to go get the camera, my very next step was looking this beaut up online to read a little about them. Little did I realize that the sweet potato is related to the morning glory. What an unexpected sweet treat our sweet potatoes gave us this morning. 😉
We also of course have our broccoli, cauliflower, turnips, and lettuce growing and doing great.
