Purple Sweet Potatoes For Your Summer Garden

These are the potato slips we are growing this year. We love sweet potatoes and this year we were given a variety that we had not tried in the past. We grow our slips with a method that most gardeners use and that is with toothpicks and water in a jar.

Enjoy the photos!

Those potatoes look huge! I bought some purple potato seed this year but I think I planted too soon. Pretty sure they rotted in the ground :( Im curious how they taste.

Looking forward to seeing how they grow! Thanks for your generosity in sending some this way!!!

Zac...I have seen some people cut them in half to get 2 slips from one potato. Do you find that leaving them whole works better?

Gonna have to try this method of growing. I remember my father used to just cut them up making sure they had "eyes" on them and then just bury them in the garden and magically they would just grow (;

I am so glad y'all are planting them! I am curious to see how the growing and harvesting goes.

Those things look awesome!
