Sweet Sweet Potato

In the previously mentioned garden (still yet to be planted) we are trying some new stuff.  One of which is sweet potatoes. So today I took a sweet potato from the pantry, and placed it in a mason jar of water.  My understanding is that it will begin to grow vines, which I can remove and transplant to the garden.  Stay tuned for the results.

This will work, but it takes some time--maybe a few weeks. You can also simply plant sweet potato or regular potatoes, cut into pieces, each piece with 1-2 eyes, straight into the ground. It's easier. Potatoes work very well this way--we've not tried it with sweet potatoes though. Linda and John
