One day this last Spring, I saw sweet potato slips at the local greenhouse. I wanted them. I love sweet potatoes and thought it would be a great addition to my winter food supply.
However, I have planted sweet potatoes before. They looked like they did really well until I went to dig them and couldn’t find them. I found a never ending system of roots, but no tubers. I wasn’t a happy camper.
Then I heard about planting sweet potatoes in barrels or tubs. Hmmm…that could work for me. I have plenty of twenty-five gallon feed tubs that I had gotten for free.
