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

sweet potato sprouts 146 sweet potato sprouts 172 sprouting sweet potatoes 176 I have three sweet potato varieties sprouting: Beauregard, Jewel and Hannah. I am keeping them at 80*F, as they don't seem to grow at all at cooler temperatures. Still, they are growing slowly.

I have just ordered my first sweet potatoes to grow, so it's encouraging to see some in action. I think they should be renamed hot potatoes - they'll be lucky to see temps that high here!

Looking good, we haven't been terribly successful with sweet potatoes. But, we will try and persevere, perhaps they don't like our London Clay soil.

These sprouts are finally taking off. I am pleased that there are so many of them. Even the Hannah has sprouted, which hadn't at the time of these photos.
