Hard to see this is in a deep pot. But theres #newgrowth and #newshoots popping through even one right next to the leaves already out and some on other side of pot. Will need soil soon lol #sweetpotato #gyo #growyourown #freshisbest #veggies #rootvegetable #containergrown
Def try that @exotic_earth_child you put a few in small layer of soil and build up as the plant grows taller like regular potatoes. Google container growing them. Def worth it. Fresh just taste better. Thank you
#sweetpotato will keep adding dirt as these grow.. testing this growing way this year. If it works well I'll keep this container back for next year as well. If not it's going to another fruit tree. #containergrown
My veg bed is almost full up for plants I marked out for placement of vegetables I should have put my reg potatoes in the tires and just built them up and up instead of veg bed(took a lot of space i needed ).. I guess I can hold off repotting a fruit tree and just use its newer large containers for now for this.. @dirtgirlworld @columbiariver still gotta get dirt.. #whyamialwaysoutofdirt
Yes, I agree with that. I would definitely grow as many foods that can be harvested this year as possible for your own nutrition. My fruit trees love a year or two in pots to be spoiled anyway. 💚 now I see I misunderstood your comment. Same basic premise tho
Thats what im gonna do! Food is vital this yr with only having 16.00 for food every month! Laura @columbiariver its why I'm trying so hard to do more food stuff like fruit etc! Gonna look into thornless berries as well to help!
I call it slow genocide Laura @columbiariver all it actually is gonna do is cause crime rates to go up people stealing to feed their family. Now me im just trying to grow whatever i can. Hard to do on a budget and no help or proper supplies like soil pots or a larger veg bed lol if i had a tiller and other proper tools i would extend the veg bed and make other beds to grow more! Been multi tasking pots containers already! But I do the best i can with what i have and hopefully it will work!
More #sweetpotatoflower hope I get a good batch of #sweetpotato to eat.. Yummy i can taste sweet potato fries already.. i am actually growing some indoors just for the flowers as an experiment maybe I'll get a few sweet potatoes as well lol
2 #slips are now ready for #separation and #waterrooting #water-propagation to make #strong #healthy #roots to #plant in the #veggiebed or in a #large #container #alwaysoutofdirt so #vegatablebed it will be. Dontforget #companionplanting for a better #successrate for your #crops #companionplants for #sweetpotatoes #whitehellebore #dill #thyme #beets #parsnips #basil #okra #fullsun #avoid #tomatoes #squash
Thanks Keely i did an oops and did it upside down on a few but it still worked so im happy about this progress. Even if i get a few healthy slips it will get me a lot of sweetpotatoes. It will take a while longer before they are ready to be planted tho. Hope by spring will be more than ready @Keely
Fantastic progress, Cyndi. You should end up with a wonderful crop. I had so many last year that I dehydrated sliced sweet potatoes/yams for my dog as treats. She loves them and they are so good for her!
Thanks you all @kimguy @columbiariver @jeatacake im hoping to have great crop of good food and herbs this year Fingerscrossed lol and yes Jeff its in water you cut the ends off and put the cut end in water held up with tooth picks clean water often and give it time takes forever lol but worth it.
They need started indoors and it takes a long while. To start the slips by the time they are ready it will be warm enough for you lol.. http://www.diynetwork.com/how-to/outdoors/gardening/how-to-plant-and-grow-sweet-potatoes. This is a easy #link for them. @jeatacake
Its fun to watch the process of the slips growing as well. Few years back i grew sweetpotatoes. Boy where they good too. @jennlamaye. Pretty flowers as well. Like morning glories all over the ground lol.
