Question for you. Do you plant the sweet potato slips into cups of soil to be planted later in the spring in the garden or do you let them grow and plant the slip directly into the garden? And what is the planting direction for the slips? Thank you in advance. I love your videos.
yes we will let the slip grow 8 to 10 inches then cut them first we place them in a jar of water to let them root then place them in a cut of soil till the time of planting. When we pant the slips in the ground we will plant up to the leafs. thank you for the kind words and here is the link to our planting sweet potatoes from last spring https://thewisconsinvegetablegardener.com/2014/06/15/planting-sweet-potato-slips-straight-to-the-point/
i would love to know how to do the lettuce bucket system… hydroponics..?
Thank you for watching in December we did a video on how we sat our up here is the link to that video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w4jWyNLAILA
thank you! i want to try that- maybe in my old aquarium! once the slips form on the sweet potato- if it is too early to plant outside do i toss them , plant them in posts, or ? mine has leaves – but it is still pretty cold here at night. will it make more slips after i cut them off? how do i plant the slips ? many thanks!
You can let you slips grow and stay attached to the potato till they get to 10 12 14 inches cut them off place them in a jar of water so they can grow roots they plant them in the ground when it get warm and yes the potato will re grow slips after you cut them off
