With fingers crossed & Daumen gedruckt, I’ve planted two sweet potato slips. Conventional wisdom states they most likely will not produce viable crops for a few reasons.
First, sweet potatoes (being a tropical vegetable) need a minimum of 100 days of consistently warm sun. Second, they need a lot of soil within which to develop their tuberous roots. Thirdly, in an attempt to get as many sunny days as possible, I omitted the ‘soaking-the-slips-in-water-to-develop-roots’ step. In my defense, I’ve read that it’s not often necessary. We’ll see how it all turns out.
