    dont the tubars get tougher as the season goes on? Leaving the plant in till frost seems too long a season

  14. Reply to a month old post . LOL. You could trim the vines just try not to cut the rooted vines.

  15. When you pull the sweet potato slips can you reuse them if yes how long can they stay without being planted and where do you keep them when not being used?

  16. I guess I planted too many because they are overtaking my garden. Can I run the vines along the fence

    Jarrett, thanks for the great information. We’re growing sweet potatoes for the first time here in Owens Cross Roads, Alabama, and we’re eager to see how they turn out.
    Thanks again!

  18. Hmmmmm, ferilizer? Disease?  Rotation? Where do you buy slips?

  19. I planted a 100 foot row of Beauregard sweet potatoes 97 days ago today. I have dug under them in about 3 or 4 places just to see if I could find any, but each search has been fruitless. Am I not giving them enough time, or am I perhaps looking in the wrong place. What do ‘you’ suggest??

  20. thanks for posting, this is very helpful

  21. a sweet potatoes is not an potato. They just call it sweet potato

  22. Hi,
    I would have been even more thankful to learn what makes you understand that is the time to harvest and if the frost is passed before you harvest them, if the potatoes will be lost or still good if you harvest just after the frost?!
    When there is a flower, does that mean that one potato or a group of potatoes will be perhaps growing under the plant?

  23. : I respect your opinions. But all the potatoes are the same to me. Some are sweet and some are plain with no flavor like the standard kind. Do you have a veggie garden? I grow my own potatoes. They all look the same. That’s how I come to conclusion that all potatoes are the same. Thanks for replying.

  24. @OS253potatoes are potatoes? hardy. sweet potatoes are way better for you than the stardard potato. incomparable

  25. didnt you get schooled on potatoes on another tutorial?
