You can read the original story about this plant and see the first update at Part 1 and Part 2.
The sweet potato plant has continued to send out shoots. I decided to buy a trellis and attempt to train the shoots to go up the trellis rather than cross the dining room carpet! These photos were taken on November 28 and 29.
I don’t know if the plant will ever produce sweet potatoes but it definitely has beautiful leaves.
A few days ago a neighbor asked if I wanted some rhubarb from her garden. I enthusiastically said “Yes”!
She put the rhubarb on my porch and let me know it was there. I was astounded by how big the leaves were.
I put a nickel on one of the leaves to give you a better sense of its size.
I wonder if the leaves are this big because the air quality in the city is so much better since there is decreased traffic due to the stay at home orders. Everything in nature seems more healthy and more beautiful this year.
