Sweet Potato Planting Parties

We will be planting many rows of Sweet Potato slips this weekend. Its easy planting and will make for a fun crop mob. This is a great chance for something fun to do in the sunshine, get into the fields and help grow your own food, have a cookout and general good fun. Bring the family! We hope to meet you in the fields!

Did you know? Sweet Potatoes are grown from what’s called a “slip”, its a stem and leaf that sprouts off a main potato. The slip is cut off the main potato and planted in to the rows. In contrast, with white potatoes, the whole potato is planted, or a cutting of a quarter potato.
