After a lot of hard work - growing slips in water and planting them and nurturing them all summer - I started digging my sweet spuds today.

The tops have grown well and there was nothing to indicate there was a problem. However, of the 14 or so plants that grew, I have got just a handful of useable sweet potatoes. The rest have gone completely rotten and some are as big as a pineapple!!

Did I leave them too long in the ground? Has anyone else had this problem? :(

Perhaps I was just unlucky then, but will def. dig them earlier next year - even if only to see how they are. I was gobsmacked at the size of them though! Really huge! :)
