Sweet Potatoes - Update
These are the sweet potatoes 'Georgia Jet'. Ordered from Jung's, I received 15 slips two days ago. They looked pretty bad. As you may remember, I couldn't tell what these dead things were when they arrived two days ago. They spent a couple hours in water and then were potted up in compost and placed under the lights on the heat mat.
I will let them root up in the pots and then plant them out in the family garden, probably in about 10 days.
'Georgia Jet is supposed to be the best for our climate here in central Wisconsin. Typical yield is 5 to 10 pounds per slip. Our goal is 50 pounds from the 15 slips.
