Rosemary Kimball washes just-harvested sweet potatoes at Heritage Farm in Sea Pines on Thursday. The potatoes, about a ton Kimball estimated, were grown in a plot dedicated to Deep Well and Second Helpings, charities that distribute food to the needy. Kimball said she attributed the better than average harvest to a good amount of rain this summer.

Area food banks will receive a bumper crop of donated foods this fall, thanks to a good summer growing season that had plenty of rain for the crops. A portion of the Sea Pines community garden was dedicated to two area pantries.
