Giant sweet potato

This giant sweet potato was for sale at the Storm Lake Farmers Market last Thursday. It was grown by Evelia Sosa (above) of Crooked Creek Farm near Lake View. It tipped the scales at eight pounds. The market continues through October every Saturday from 8 a.m.-12 p.m. and every Thursday from 4-6 p.m. at the Buena Vista County Courthouse square. Up to a dozen vendors sell everything from apples to zucchini, with home baked pies, breads and brownies available also. Times photo by Dolores Cullen
