    Today when I dug over a section of garden to get it ready for some corn, I found this little lot of sweet potatoes from last summer. This came from an area of 1.5m x 1.5m. We had so many this year, I left a lot in the ground because we couldn’t use them all.

    Note how the ends are missing on a few. This is from the chooks getting stuck into any tops that were sticking out of the ground. They love them! (I also put the fork through a couple)

    These particular sweet potatoes originated in Alice Springs. My neighbour went to visit her son over there a few years ago and brought some back with her. Her vines grew into my place so I appropriated a few vine cuttings. The rest, as they say, is history…

    They are a very tasty sweet potato!

    To see how much the chooks love them, her are a couple of sweet potatoes in another bed that the chooks just got into…

    Here’swhat I grabbed this morning notice the carrots on the right side of the turnips are intertwined.

    very close planting but I’m surprised to see they are a decent size.

    Rats are a greater issue for me with my sweet potatos than the chooks. The buggers dig trenches to find and then chew on the tubers :S

    I don’t have the rat problem but I watch the chooks get into them when I let them out of an afternoon.

    They love my silverbeet too! :angry:

    Two large purple caulis & loads of broccoli for us (and not a bug in site 🙂 ), and sent DD home with lots of lettuce & silverbeet.

    Very happy that our chooks are back on the lay too, after a couple of months of none at all, then 1-2 a day for another month from 17 girls we’ve had 8-10 each day for the last 3 days. Just in time too as they were about to sent to a friend’s farm to live out their non-laying days. We’ll keep them a bit longer, but they’ll still end up there one day.
