Sweet Potatoes

I have started my sweet potato slips for 2015.

I always have some “fingerling” sweet potatoes left over from a harvest. In 2013, I was able to bake them and have 5 cups of sweet potato ready to use later.  In 2014, the harvest was slim and there were only a half a dozen.

As I left them lying around waiting for an inspiration for what to do with them, one started to sprout.  So, I stuck it in a jar of water with some toothpicks and it is making green.  When they are 3 of 4 inches tall, I’ll pop them off the potato and straight into the water to form roots.  Then, I’ll have them ready for planting after the last frost.

Now, the rest have little sproutlets.  I wonder who I can give them to.
