They are purple sweet potatoes. All were grown in a 7 gallon pot, about 6 months to grow.

Marsha, simply beautiful. I started digging through my seed collection, planning for next year's garden and found some that you sent me a couple years ago (with tiny ziplocks and your handwriting). Everything you gave me did well, thanks again.

Those all look fantabulous. If you ever think about sharing seeds, the "crushed heart" would have a warm place in my heart (and garden) come next spring.

Happy new year to you.

Wow - I can't believe how far ahead yours are to mine. The only ones of mine that I've picked from your recommendations are:

Not Vintage Wine
Parish
Dana's Dusky Rose
Lots of KARMA PINK


My Elgin Pink is no where near ripe, nor is Brad's Atomic Grape or Mocha Splash.

Keep the pictures coming; we love it.

Thank you for sharing those. Nice break while putting my lists in order and checking supplies.
So glad I got seeds for GGWT - can’t wait!

Great pics! As I'm still almost a month from being able to start seeds, my first reaction was just plain ol' jealousy! I'll be ok, though...the 2019 season is just around the corner! Keep the pictures coming!

Crushed Heart is indeed a prolific producer, and beautiful. Taste is only a 7 so far, often the taste gets better as the season goes on.

barb, I love Mocha Splash. I think something is destroying your blossoms, you should be starting to get tons of fruit on those by now. Check for all sorts of bugs.

I'll be jealous in July, so I can sympathize.

Well there's going to be the usual January seed for SASE offer, so look for it. You won't need the stamp.

Karen do they have those multicolored cherries there? Those are pretty reasonable tasting, and they are where I got that store bought bicolor cherry, which was delicious and the taste rivals any cherry I could grow.
Ripening is starting to crank into high gear, I hope I can keep up!

Marsha's winter tomato pictures, always a welcome sight to winter eyes! Thanks Marsha! Thinking I'll be trying GGWT in 2019 for the first time.
