Container Grown Sweet Potatoes

We save valuable real estate in the vegetable garden by growing some of our vining crops such as sweet potatoes in containers. This year’s harvest is over 11 lbs. from two containers. We’ll save the smaller tubers for starting next year’s crop. In January, we’ll bury those tubers halfway in a flat of soil insuring the ends are covered. In time they will sprout and provide us the slips we need for next season’s harvest!
