These are some sweet potatoes that we picked up in the field behind our house after the harvesters had finished.
This picture shows how large the field is.
Here is a picture of some of the sweet potatoes that were not deemed good enough and were left behind. There's nothing wrong with them, except they aren't the perfect size and therefore would not sell well at the grocery store.
The field is covered in piles of these imperfect sweet potatoes. They will soon be disced up and will become part of the soil again. I have noticed many fields in the area that have lots of potatoes left behind.
We probably should have picked up lots more for the pantry. Sweet potatoes keep well, they are a healthy carb and are on the Trim Healthy Mama plan as an "E" meal.
Its that time of year when I feel the need to stock the pantry for winter. Thank goodness we can go to the grocery store any time we want. We are so blessed.
