I had a remnant sweet potato from 2015 that recently sprouted. I stuck it atop a glass of water and it "took root". It's now planted in dirt. I love the vines it makes.

My thermometer registered 4 above zero this morning, and the worst is yet to come! Luckily, I only got 1" of snow yest. Indy got 4". Florida in January will be welcome. More on that later.

The last sweet potatoes I bought were dry. I microwaved them and fed them to the chickens. I don't know the origin of those sweet potatoes but they were pale orange in color. Not the usual bright orange variety.
Do sweet potatoes need to age before they are cooked??? And they cost 1.49 lb.

Daniel, is your subdued energy level related to your cancer issues? I don't follow your cancer group. Hopefully, it's just the seasonal "disorder".

And on the sweet potato theme: I've been experimenting on baking my "fingerlings" (I can't resist harvesting even the smallest ones.), trying to turn them into crunchy "chips". I roll them in olive oil and salt first, then bake them on a cookie sheet. They become either chewy or soft. I've tried storing them cold, warm, wrapped up, left to open air, dehydrated, but haven't found the answer. Keep experimenting.

Spud, I can make a degree symbol, but after it pops up, I lose the page. I tried it here several times, but for some reason it disappears. Oh well, I'll just write the word.

Thanks Daniel.  I found Randys sweet potato peanut butter soup recipe on the food group and saved it.

I bought a couple of cans of sweet potatoes, but found them to be stringy, so I'm not doing that again.  I purchased some in the vegetable isle, and they had no strings, plus they tasted better.  If I can get some to grow here, I imagine they'll taste better yet.

Wikipedia gives several ways to get a degree symbol on a Windows computer.  Look under the heading "Keyboard entry" near the bottom of this page:

I tried, Spud. No luck. Must be Windows.

I just read how important it is to eat carotenoid-rich foods such as sweet potatoes, carrots, kale and spinach for a healthy brain. I eat those ALL the time, but they don't seem to make me any smarter! By the way, I grow them all in my garden.

And thanks for the feedback Randy.

Randy, if you have a Windows computer, it's probably completely different, but with my  Mac computer, I get the degree symbol by holding down both the "Alt" and "Shift" keys, then pressing the "8" key.  I can get a smaller degree symbol by holding down the "Alt" key, then pressing the "K" key.

Comment by Randall Smith on December 7, 2016 at 7:19am

Spud, I can see all your symbols. I don't know how to make them, esp. the degree one. This is from a guy that couldn't figure out how to turn on his new monitor. Embarrassing.

I was wondering what ever happened to Barbara. She was into gardening and seemed to enjoy our group.

Made "Asian kale stew" last night from the remaining garden kale. I'll probably lose it in the next several days with super cold temperatures forecast.
