Where's my gardening experts? I need some knowledge! My sweet potatoes all came out looking like bears clawed them in the middle of their growth. Perhaps they tangled with some zombies? Could this be from getting too much rain this summer during a key part of the growing season? Or is it something in my soil balance?
The good news is that once I peel all that mess, they still taste good underneath. I roasted wedges in olive oil and herbs and they were fantastic. The bad news is that they are not storing for very long (maybe two weeks) before getting soft inside. They aren't staying firm like they should. So if you have any great ideas for preserving them let me know.
