How & Why did the Sweet Potato plant cross the path?

With my help of course … no, actually at my insistence. I usually propagate Sweet Potato plants in summer and to give them a good chance of survival (in our still very poor ground soil) I usually perform what I call the Sweet Potato Spa treatment.

In this corner/stretch, I have decided to let Ma Nature help me.  My “Sweetie” shares playground with my carefully controlled Water Convolvulvus (蕹菜) and is the secondary recipient of water from the air-conditioning unit.

Sweet Potato plants love the air-conditioner created micro climate.

So let it stay connected to mama-plant while it happily strays (with my guidance) to lay down roots on ground soil.

Straying on new ground.

When established, I will cut their “umbilical” link and allow them to be my groundcover on the other side of the path. Then, for sure, I will not run out of Sweet Potato leaves (hopefully roots too) for my kitchen use.

  1. Your efforts keep fetching you results in the form of fruits, vegetables,
    leaves and what not on earth coming right from there.
