Strange year continues

Strange year continues

So I got my check back from Sandhill for the sweet potato slips I ordered. It seems it was too cold in Iowa this year to grow enough to fill all of their orders. Kinda a mixed blessing, as I wonder if the rest of the summer would have been hot enough to grow them anyway. But all and all just another example of an unusual year. Looks like I'll grow more carrots and rutabagas in the land I set aside for sweets.
Because I have this need to show off :-)
