Sweet potatoes make for large harvest

 LEBANON JUNCTION - A woman living on the old family farm found an heirloom no one had ever seen there before.

Wanda Crump grew an Early Triumph white heirloom sweet potato in her garden that weighed 9.25 pounds.

“I think it looks like a funky pumpkin,” she said.

Three more of the potatoes weighed in at a combined 7.75 pounds.

Crump found the Early Triumph potatoes through a friend, Judy Johnson. According to Crump, Johnson’s mother, Nevil, grew the potatoes at her home in Pike County.
