Sweet Potato Surprise

Nope, my sweet potato surprise isn't a new Thanksgiving recipe.

Remember this spring I planted ornamental sweet potatoes in my front planters?

Well, I had quite a surprise when I pulled out the old vines while cleaning up the front porch...

There were sweet potatoes growing... and some where pretty big!  Wow.  I guess I thought that the ornamentals wouldn't grow the tubers.

From what I've read, the ornamentals are not very tasty and most sites suggested storing them to grow slips from next year.

Sounds like a plan to me!
