If a sweet potato has a tail, may we keep it as a pet?


It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas autumn, and that's because the star of this week's Local Roots' CSA share were 3 petite sweet potatoes with adorable tail-like tendrils.  

But dare summer be overshadowed, nectarines (two of which were promptly eaten, the third of which remains on our desk—destined for breakfast-for-dinner cobbler), tiny tomatoes, and arugula also made an appearance. 

What would you do with this crop? Advise us in the comments! 


Interested in joining our CSA fun? Local Roots is taking late orders for their fall share until September 22.
