I got to wondering how the lil' sweet potato I planted back a week or so ago was doing, hadn't seen any leaves come up, so I felt around in the dirt and pulled it out -- this cool weather has put the quietus on the poor thang, no sprouts nor roots were evident, so I decided to replant it over near some mint, with the hope that seeing all the mint growing and sending out runners will inspire it to do likewise. And mayhap the resulting potatoes will have a nice minty flavor.
I told you you'd live to regret tearing up my camellias.
