Year 1 – November Week 1: Autumn Harvests
This week we finally harvested all the sweet potatoes and peanuts.
Sweet Potatoes and Peanuts
Most of the Azuma sweet potato plants (yellowish ones) didn’t produce well this year. On the other hand, we were able to harvest a lot of purple sweet potatoes both in big and small sizes.
I’m wondering if the location mattered since yellow ones were planted on the sides of the bed while purple ones are in the middle.
For peanuts, I already knew that there’s nothing much to harvest. Only few of the peanut plants survived in the summer heat and also failed to clean out the weeds. The challenge will continue next year, for sure!
Plants Growth Updates
Trimmed the leaves of the brussel sprout plants to give these tiny sprouts more sunlight exposure.
Noticed some green worms on the green kales but not in the purple ones. Is that their way to camouflage themselves? Found black worm on purple kale plant instead.
Harvested some of the spring onions by cutting only the leaves and leaving some parts at the bottom, just enough to allow it to re-grow again.
