Gail Biggers shows off an 18-inch purple sweet potato grown by her husband, Ronnie Biggers, in their home garden on Brookfield Circle in Salisbury. This is the first year they’ve grown potatoes and harvested an even larger purple sweet potato that measured 20 inches and was shaped like a horseshoe. They boil the potatoes and then bake them.
