There's Nothing Better than a Sweet Potato

This week's newsletter is all about sweet potatoes! How to grow them, cook them, and store them! Read more about the sweet potato from one of our favorite blogs, DIY Natural!

But for now, how about some sweet potato fun facts?

  • A common misconception concerning the sweet potato is that a sweet potato is not a yam and a yam is not a sweet potato!
  • The shoots, stems, and leaves of a sweet potato plant can be eaten like spinach, either steamed or eaten raw!
  • The sweet potato originated in Central America where it was first cultivated over 5,000 years ago!
  • Animals love their sweet potatoes too!
  • Sweet potatoes are incredible nutrient dense and contain vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants!
  • And, sweet potatoes do not contain many calories. In fact, pound for pound, there are less calories in a sweet potato than a typical "Irish" potato! Do not let the name fool you!
*All facts were paraphrased from the DIY Natural blog!

This week is our monthly Market Sprouts event! Bring your sweet little ones to market and make a craft with us!
