Wilted Tops

My husband bought me a book at the Goodwill.
Gardening in Small Spaces.
I didn't expect anything profound as I flipped through its pages.
But in the chapter titled Vegetable Growing in Small Space,
I looked at an ugly bucket of dead stuff, and read the caption:

Sweet potato production in a 5-gallon container. 
Wilted tops indicate that the crop is mature.

Now there's a thought to ponder.
