I will go ahead and admit that last year was the first year I grew sweet potatoes. I will also admit that I kicked myself all year for not having started years ago! They were so easy to grow! Beautiful, easy, prolific, healthy, and delicious. What more could you ask for in a vegetable?
This year I have big plans for my sweet potatoes. I plan to grow them all over the place. They had such lovely vines, than I see no reason not to landscape with them, so I plan to grow them in every available "landscaping" bed. Let's face it, if I can't eat it, I won't tend it anyway, so I might as well plant something edible to spruce up our tired flower beds!
These were "surprise" sweet potatoes I found when cleaning out the garden bed long after the original harvest!
Sweet Potatoes from 9 plants in my square foot garden! I had the BEST time digging these up with my bare hands!
