Many readers will be familiar with Sweet Potatoes from the shelves of the supermarkets & produce stores, but did you know the leaves are edible too? It’s commonly sold and eaten in Asia but I have yet to find it for sale in the US. So what do I do? Grow it myself of course!
The leaves are loaded with nutrition and I usually pluck some, sauté with olive oil and garlic then put that on a veggie burger. Yummy! I kid you not.
Today is “Tidying & Propagating Sweet Potato Day” for me. I need that aim to remind me not to go astray in the backyard, doing this and that then end up forgetting about Sweet Potatoes. 😳
Lots of trimming ~ some for the kitchen, some to be planted in new areas & some to just neaten the grow patch. Cuttings to be replanted are now undergoing a spa treatment of sort, in case of shock, to stimulate re-starting life in new soil.
… and tonight …
So now, it’s time to head to the driveway to do my raindance … it’s been overcast the whole day and a bit of rain now will help to settle the somewhat disturbed soil and calm the Sweet Potato babies which are still a-growing.
