Sweet potatoes, we have been trying to grow them for years and this was year three - we ordered the slips from a local supplier again to try and when they died we tried our own version - going to the grocery store we bought an unknown variety that was organic. Went to youtube to see how to make our own slips, planted them and waited. The vines on top were lovely but we really didn't know what we would get in the end. Pleased as punch we averaged about 8 potatoes a plant with 44 sweet potatoes harvested. We will be saving one to make our own slips again in 2015.
