Back in June I found a sweet Potato that had sprouted thinking it was to late but what the heck so I planted it in a round tote full of MM, one with rope handles and put a tall Tomato cage on top, Well here's what looked like a copula a months ago. Then I went out yesterday and saw the was dying so I cut the plant down and dumped the tote here's what I found, the big one came in at 7.5 lbs. maybe I let them grow to long.Before & After Img_2611

One sweet potato can produce a lot of slips. Each slip produces a few SP = lots of SP. Very economical propagation. Very Happy

That's Fantastic Sanderson Congrats.  Sweet potatoes are probably one of the few things I have not tried yet. Bet those will be the best you have ever tasted.  Let us know please?

I guess sweet potatoes love your heat! Very Happy You didn't even have to cover them with shade, right?

They are under shade cloth from about 1 pm on.  That's just because of the location the totes must be placed.  However, the 110*F temps don't seem to faze them much.  I bought a new tote and found one in the attic that will work as the second one.  They have to be a solid color so the sun doesn't reach the SP.
