I’m worried people will get confused with the type of yams people grow in America. The yams we tried to grow are what are more commonly called New Zealand yams. They are much smaller, and look nothing like a Kumara.
New Zealand Yams:
Although we wanted to grow kumara, we didn’t get aroung to it. Mainly because we started too late for a decent growing season for them. But we did plant yams!
That’s them in the back ground under the peas and behind the silverbeet, sometime back in summer.
And today I harvested them!
A few unearthed:
Half full bin:
And full bin:
And I don’t think I’m finished either! They really spead themselves around where ever you plant them, and apparently they are hard to get rid of once they’re in your garden. My Mum told me that once you’ve panted a yam, you will always have yams.
I’m not complaining, just sounds like free food from now on if you ask me. =).
