Experiments in Sweet Potato Culture.

We are giving the 'hot foot' method of growing sweet potatoes a try. In a 4 x 4 bed we've got 'Qualls' and 'Continental Red' varieties. Not pictured, in a completely different bed, are 'Oklahoma Heirloom' and 'Edna Evans' varieties.

She (he) has been aggressive from day one, the tail feathers are looking pointy, and has started making some strange, almost crowing-like noises.
