“Said Aristotle unto Plato,
'Have another sweet potato?'
Said Plato unto Aristotle,
'Thank you, I prefer the bottle.'”

Owen Wister (American writer and "Father" of western fiction, 1860-1938)

TIME:  6:10 PM
PLACE:  The kitchen table
SUBJECT:  Sweet Potato

Well, it took another week, but I finally did what I said I was going to do - I planted the mums and pansies that have been patiently sitting and waiting for me to get my rear end in gear.  When I pulled out the sweet potato vines from my planters, I found that I grew potatoes over the summer!  Well, I grew two potatoes.  Think these will be enough for Thanksgiving?
