Sweet potatoes, mandarin oranges


Grew three species of sweet potatoes last April...
The racoons got the better of the potatoes, but luckily they left some behind...
The above potatoes are called 'Anno'...
The flesh is orange in color and is extremely smooth, moist, and sweet...
We take them simply baked, with no additives of any sort...


We have a few types of oranges in the orchard...
These mandarin oranges are fruiting on their first season with us...
The tree is still rather short, yet it produced six fruits...
The 'proper' way is actually to remove all the fruits so as to channel the nutrients to make the tree larger...
As such, the tree will be stronger and its produce, better...
Oh well, let us see...
