Another attempt to get pictures right. It shows one of my first confirmed mutations. It grew from a shriveled up orange/orange root that was discarded after taking slips. All the other slips came out the same as the parent root but this one came out pink/oranage.

Umm, Its 800 pixels wide but still have to scroll horizontal, don't like that. Anybody know how to fix it? Could just trim it down to 700 or 600 I reckon.

The synopsis of my adventure with sweet potatoes is turning into more of a book. Might be awhile till its done.

The size you posted is also good for me, though i notice the size of the photo in the quotes become smaller

Changeable climate manly during winter & spring - 500mm average yearly rainfall. 20 years of soil improvements plus sub soil top soil reversal means my garden beds are about half metre deep. Below that is 100's of metres of alluvial shingle
