Fall Harvest

This year our garden contained the usual tomatoes and cucumbers but I decided to try something new! I also planted watermelon and sweet potaotes. The watermelons were ok. They were sweet enough, but they were grainy and had seeds! Since it was my first year growing sweet potatoes I wasn't sure when to harvest them. I knew they were ready about a month ago when I stumbled upon a perfect potato poking out of the ground. But then school started and a day turned into a week and then a month. Finally, this was the weekend, so Noah and his friend Grant helped me dig them up! You would have thought they struck gold each time they dig one up.

Do you think you're going to eat the gigantic ones? I wonder if it would be good? The one year we tried a garden, we left the squash too long and they got enormous. And they didn't have much flavor at that size.
