Sweet potato harvest not so good. small tubers (pics)
This year was my first time growing sweet potatoes and I was really excited for when harvest day would come. All my hard work would finally pay off. Especially when my parents told me you won't have any potatoes..
I planted the slips in May and harvested them today. So it's been close to 140 days.
I had 3-4 Japanese Sweet Potato plants and 3 regular orange sweet potato.
The vines and bushes were very healthy and growing like wildfire but the tubers were so small. Even at 140 days of maturity.
What did I do wrong? too much nitrogen? The only plant that had A big potato was flowering.
I had a 4' by 3' plot and the growth was more wilder than most videos I saw online but I had 10x less potatos vs plants.
It was so BAD I drove to the supermarket to throw some in :D but will remove them when I cure my newly harvested ones
