Yesterday I was grabbing a couple of sweet potatoes from the cabinet to cook and there was another one sprouting. I could have still used it or I could have found a place to plant it but my garden area is pretty full. Vince had been mulching leaves all day and filling the new planters with them. I’ve been throwing some veggie scraps in there. The leaves had filled the planters way more than we’ll fill it with dirt but that will all compost down to almost nothing but, in the meantime . . I had a sweet potato that could be planted.
I scooped out a little hole in the leaves, buried the whole sweet potato, covered it, watered it and we’ll see what happens. I hope it fills that entire container with sweet potatoes. Sometime towards the end of September, we’ll have a sweet potato reveal! 🙂
We love sweet potatoes and my goal is to grow enough to last us til next year’s crop is ready. That’s a lofty goal and I’ll probably not be able to do it but I can try.
