Harvested sweet potatoes 2007

Have to take them out very gently or they break in two.

All potatoes we harvested this year. The green things are sweet potato runners. When people in the generation survived the WW2 find this sweet potato runners, they cook them telling younger generations that they ate them at that time because not enough things around to eat - especially in big cities where not enough farms were around.

A dish of fried sweet potato runners. Nothing special in taste, but I guess even this kind of things must have been very important thing to fill stomaches if there were not enough things to eat. Lately people seem to have better opinions for it becuase they have much dietary fiber.

Daikon - the Japanese raddish. What should I cook with it for tonight?
