  • Agriculture - Sweet potatoes need five months to grow

     

    Once again we enjoyed sweet potatoes all winter long from a fantastic harvest last fall.

    I planted about 25 organic slips purchased from Country Corner Greenhouse in Shepherdsville in late May and by early November we had four nursery crates full of one of nature’s perfect foods. Seven months and counting in storage with no spoilage is impressive. We are down to about a dozen sweet potatoes; just in time for a transition to other summer vegetables.

    One of the top quarterbacks of any era, as well as one of the most successful, Brady now stands to have his reputation permanently marred because of his alleged involvement in doctoring footballs in order to make them easier to throw and catch in freezing weather.
