New Video: Planting and Growing Sweet Potatoes The Easy Way

I'm a big fan of sweet potatoes. I grow them in beds, in the food forest, on a train, in the rain, with a goat, on a boat, etc.

Unlike many crops, you can start sweet potato beds later in the season here and still get good yields. They don't seem to mind the heat like other vegetables. Once you have some vines growing in a pot or in a garden bed, starting new beds is easier than you might think.

In my latest video I show you a really easy method to start a new bed of sweet potatoes:

Just came in from planting some more sweet potatoes( I've got about 26 planted from slips that were potted. I realize I got started a little late this year. I'll be definitely keeping this idea in mind for next year. I'll also have some areas with a lot better soil too. I'm near the top of the sand dunes in the Keystone Heights area. We have sand and only sand. I've dug about 20 melon pits that I've filled with horse manure and leaves from all the anal retentive types who so very conviniently leave their unwanted leaves bagged by the side of the road for me. I've brought home somewhere between 150 and 200 bags of leaves for use as mulch, compost, leaf mould and melon pits(with additional horse manure). Of course that's not much for an acre and a half, but I'm working on it.
