Sweet Potato Planting Time!
Last fall several elementary students took home beginning sweet potato plants with instructions of how to care for them. Here is a current photo of one student, Owen, at home with his still living sweet potato plant! I am so pleased that his plant survived the winter! Students, did any of your sweet potato plants survive? Now is the time to plant them!
Sweet Potato Tips:
They like heat but need to be protected from the hot AZ sun in the afternoons. Use a cover pictured here or plant it under a tree so it is protected from the harsh sun. Remember to keep them watered!
Below is a YouTube video showing how easy potato harvesting is when using fabric bags. These are great for home use and can be purchased online at Walmart or any garden shop.
