It weighs 12.8 lbs!  Over the summer the staff harvested 3 cases of lettuce, several pounds of squash and cucumbers, as well as numerous tomatoes, peppers and carrots.  All of the food was donated to the Seven Hills Homeless Shelter in Asbell's name.  An Asbell parent will be using the huge sweet potato to make as many sweet potato pies as she can to take to the Boys and Girls Club for the Thanksgiving feast.
