Let’s see if this works:
The clay here is very hard to dig, particularly near the house where the topsoil is thin and the clay and rocks are abundant.
A local told me to try planting yams in a trench filled with leaves and grass, so I decided to give it a try.
We’ll see how it turns out. Yams are an EXCELLENT tropical staple crop and figure prominently in my book Totally Crazy Easy Florida Gardening.
If you live in Florida and want a solid calorie crop that produces well and takes almost no work – give yams a try. The trenching isn’t required in a sandy soil.
Just pop bulbils or minisetts in the ground and wait.
