Harvesting Sweet Potatoes

First, rip out the sweet potato vines.  Then pull back the plastic & get the irrigation out of the way.  Next, carefully use a shovel and mine out the sweet potatoes...all 300 lbs. of them. 

Eventually we busted out the tractor/plow and the process went so much faster!
Last step - rub the dirt off, grade them, and store upstairs to cure them (gets them sweeter).
