Totally Crazy Easy Florida Gardening:

Today I go down the hill and dig yams. Yams are my favorite survival gardening calorie crop. They’re prolific, very easy to grow, delicious and starchy rather than sweet. I planted yam bulbils maybe six months ago and started digging after the vines died back and cows ran through my yam beds. This is the result – look at these huge yams! Some are small, sure, but some are great big things. I’m thrilled. Dioscorea spp FTW!
