I was in Shepherdsville at Country Corner Greenhouse earlier in the week and picked up some good-looking sweet potato slips that are finally ready for the garden.
Up until last week it has been too cold for the southern crop.
Sweet potatoes are tropical by nature but can be grown successfully in Kentuckiana as long as we wait until it is warm (night-time temperatures in the 60’s).
As long as they have 150 frost-free days and some steamy Ohio Valley weather, we should be knee deep in sweet potatoes by Thanksgiving.
