Our First Sweet Potato Harvest
This was our first year growing all organic sweet potatoes. We grew our own purple sweet potato slips from a farm-purchased potato and bought some Beauregard slips from a local seed supplier. The purple sweet potato had a much better yield…with one potato weighing in at about 3 pounds! Those handful of slips grew vines that took over about 1/3rd of our garden!
We are still learning how to garden, so every little success is a triumph. Especially trying to garden on a very wooded and shaded lot. It was a success to us!
