Third graders and their teacher AND the custodian all got into raising sweet potato slips from last years crop of sweet potatoes. This time our experiment didn’t do very well. Before the slips could emerge, the sweet potatoes began to decompose, regardless of the TLC they received from everyone. I’m willing to try this again, but we’ll need to find a few different variables. Suggestions?
UPDATE We found sweet potato slips already started at our local Agway Garden Center! We’ll see how these southern transplants do in Vermont.
