Sweet Potato

It’s summer! Time for sweet potato propagation… unlike in the Tropics when you can do that any time as it’s always warm.

I got the “saved” slips out of the soil and left it in 1″ of water lengthwise for 48 hours so that roots would grow. Image It sure grew faster that I expected. Every single slip had roots growing… yippee!Image

 

 

 

Time to put them in the “nursery basin” (my terminology), that’s a basin filled with 3″ of compost & soil.  Will check 1 week later.
Fingers crossed.
