This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

sweet potato sprouts on the window sill

sprouts on the sill 079

My sweet potatoes I dug last fall finally sprouted this fall. As Donald recommended, I potted them up. They are on my kitchen window sill with cacti and a poinsettia.

Very pretty! It's always nice when you finally see those sprouts pop up and realize that you did it!

Glad to see sweet potato growing on your windowsill indoor. I am experimenting this year and recently potted the vine I was rooting. It is growing on my windowsill and so far looks healthy.

Will you replant outside in the spring?

Also, I ate a fair amount of our sweet potato leaves this year. They were really tasty, a little peppery. The heart shapes look beautiful on a salad.

There is the winter squash variety which is grown in summer and can be stored right through winter, hence the name. The skin is thick and hard for winter squash.
