I harvested my sweet potatoes the other day and thought it would be fun to look back over the development of these guys.
I started my sweet potatoes by growing slips from an organic sweet potato I bought at the store. I got many slips.
However, only 1 slip actually survived planting, here it is shortly after being planted.
It grew quickly and made beautiful flowers. At one point it was overflowing the pot and trying to take over the deck! This is what it looked like the day I harvested. You can see a sweet potato coming up out of the dirt.
My harvest from 1 slip. I have no idea if this is a good harvest from 1 plant but I was happy with it.
