How easy are potatoes!

So it's probably been about 6mths of absolutely no maintenance growing. Sweet potato is just a ground cover vine that occasionally grows skyward. All we did was plant one in the middle of a patch. Not a bad harvest really! (There are some struggling carrots in there as well).

We've also got normal potato growing. They're a little more work because occasionally you just have to pile a little more soil on top to create a mound.

You can see the carrots, beetroot, Italian parsley, peanuts & nasturtiums are going well. (Again no maintenance)

This is the Chinese Broccoli. Haven't gotten around to eating them yet. But even after flowering they still look quite edible. (Not to mention looking nice and attracting bees)

Those sweet potatoes again.
