My own! I planted one row of sweet potatoes this summer. Half with sweet potato plants I bought at the store, the other half from slips I made myself (from last year’s crop). Take a look for yourself —
These are the ones I purchased. Notice how, in general, they look a bit yellowed and peaked. Skimpy vines, not full and lush.
But these bad girls are mine! Look at those beautiful green leaves, the gorgeous purple blossoms. Sure, there’s a yellow blemish or two — but nobody’s perfect.
No Ma’am! So next spring, make sure you get those slips ready in time for summer planting because it’s easy, cheaper…not to mention more productive! And just think of the mouth-watering sweet potato pie you can make come fall. Or those healthy sweet potato fries. Sweet potato casserole, anyone? Yum.
