Home-Grown Sweet Potatoes
Plant yourself a sweet treat – a sweet potato, that is.
You’ll need to first grow “slips,” vines that sprout from the potato’s buds. Place a sweet potato in a container of water with 1/3 of it exposed by toothpicks stuck into its sides. Keep it in a sunny location, and in a few weeks a vine with several stems should begin to sprout. Plant the vines outside and have a home-grown favorite this time next year.
