Massive Kumara (sweet potato)

I dug out some of my kumara (sweet potatos) today. One massive tuber is 30 cm long and 45 cm round. The kumara must like the soil.

its a raised garden a couple years old. It had a mixture of loamy soil, mushroom compost & organic matters such as grass clippings & old hay mixed up plus vegetable matter like mustard all mixed together. Full of organic matter. A few months ago it had a top dressing of compost and horse poop. We have had a very dry summer, very dry. 4 1/2 months with FA rain and I have not watered the kumara much. I have put a trickle hose across the patch a few times.

Sounds like it's very good soil; so no wonder you got such good results. I guess that all the organic matter kept the soil from drying out. Wonder how big if you had watered?
