Curing Sweet Potatoes
I am starting to harvest my first sweet potatoes and am wondering how everybody the creates right conditions for curing them. Right now, the fresh ones are completely tasteless (I expected this from my reading on the subject). It is easy to find the 80-90 degrees and high humidity needed for the first stage (I just stuck them in a dark, shady part of the yard wrapped in clean, breathable cloth. The ones that have been in these conditions for 10 days are a little bit sweet (still not nearly as good as the store though). I do not have any idea how to create an area with 60 degrees and high humidity for the second part though. I have read that they can take 6 - 8 weeks to develop full sweetness. What is everybody else's experience and how do you go about it? I have so many nice looking sweet potatoes almost ready to be harvested - I don't want them to go to waste!
