Olin, yes we've always used supermarket produce without any
repercussions. But a sweet potato 17 inches long...? What we can find 
are quite uniformly shaped, and measure no longer than 6 inches, 
whether sweets or yams. Wonder why...?  

When you say 'weighing 1 1/2 lb after curing for 2 weeks' -- does
this mean that some of the moisture evaporates after harvesting?

I do have one item worthy of publicity:  my clematis is still blooming
happily on the back banister, and it has been 30 degrees steadily for
a whole week! What a pleasure .....
