This blog follows up on the prior blog titled “Sweet Potatoes”. On April 30th, the first slip which was about 4 inches tall was ready to root. I twisted the slip off the sweet potato piece and then put it in water to root. Here is how the slip looks today. . .
If you recall, I originally cut the sweet potato in half . Here is an update on the additional slips that are growing. . .
The rounded half of the sweet potato is very slow in growing the slips (see above left) and the half that narrows is growing the slips at a faster rate (see above right). We will be planting them in the grow bags in a few weeks.
