My back will appreciate it very much I'm sure.
Let's start with the disclaimers. People around here do not grow sweet potatoes. Apparently with good reason. I have never seen them at the Farmers Market. Next, I stuck the tubers in the ground, late, with no signs of slips/sprouts. I barely got some thickened roots. I had only hoped to get something to take through the winter to make my own Beauregard slips next Spring. If sweet potatoes were available around here for a reasonable price, I would buy them!
I need to bronze my digging fork, if only to prevent me from continually puncturing my irrigation lines. Dh has mended the lines so many times I just need to get rid of the fork.
And the peach pie recipe comes from one of my sisters. The last step before putting it into the oven is to pour 1 cup of heavy cream on top
Cat, as already well explained, Zumba is a dance exercise class. One of my community members is a Zumba instructor and she leads us once a week in an hour of fun exercise.
