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 biodome.  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.

I’ve had great success this year growing the sweet potatoes featured in the image above in my Geodesic Bio Dome this summer.  They will be ready to harvest ( 120 days) after October 20.  Below is a list of articles featuring growing sweet potato tips that have helped me over the past few years.  I also enjoy referring to this when sharing with others online who wish to grow their own successfully.
