“Thought you might like to see a picture of the biggest sweet potato I have ever seen . . . and it came out of my garden,” writes Richard Brady of Flint Hill. “Six pounds on the nose, and it was too heavy to weigh with my kitchen scales. Had to use the bathroom scales. Raised beds win the day again!”
