We would like to thank our customers for their continuing support and patronage. This is greatly appreciated.
There are 3 new varieties offered this year. We have grown Ginseng Red and Travis White years ago, but sadly lost the varieties when they got frosted. Both produce decent amounts of sweet potatoes. 2022 was the first year that I have grown the Superior variety. They produced well and tended to grow long sweet potatoes. We're interested to see how they produce this year.
We look forward to another Spring of meeting many of you to pick up your order at designated, pick-up locations, or shipping them to you.
Take care everyone and happy gardening!
