Sweet Potato Growing Tips

Sweet potatoes should be on every home gardeners harvest list. Because sweet potatoes require 120 days to mature from setting plants and I’m always late planting in early April as recommended I grow mine in the geodesic bio dome.  It wasn’t until the last five years I’ve actually been able to find sweet potato starters in northwest Ohio.  I rely on information I find from the University Extension offices featuring videos like the one below.
