Lilly Long sits atop the counter at Bennett’s Hardware on Monday afternoon with a 5.5-pound sweet potato, grown by her grandfather, Joe Maupin, on Plum Ridge Road. George Hughes stands in the background at the store, which is where the sweet potato slip was purchased. Lilly’s grandmother, Patty Maupin, said the sweet potato will definitely be eaten, likely at Thanksgiving or Christmas.
