Starting Your Own Sweet Potato Slips

John - Do you have any red sweet potato slips/plants I can buy, or do you know where I can get some locally? I know it is a bit late, but I've not been able to plant them yet. Shells is out of stock. If you can suggest a source I'd appreciate it. Thanks. Jennifer

Hi Jennifer It is easy to buy an organic untreated sweet potato, let it sit in a warm room until sprouts appear, then cut it up into chunks, let them dry indoors for a day, then plant each about 4 inches deep. You can get a LOT of shoots from just 2 sweet potatoes......MUCH cheaper than buying slips! John
