Planting Sweet Potatoes In Phillippines

Our first field crop

We were super excited to do the planting of our first field crop of sweet potatoes called camote in the Philippines.

The sweet potato is normally harvested around November time, just before the dry season starts.

The beauty of camote is that you can eat the green tops as the plant grows as well as the final potato so it is a very healthy food and a staple in rural communities providing very healthy nutrition to low income farmers.
