♫ Sprout Update ♫

Spring is an amazing time ! The extra sunlight does wonders for us people and also for plants. My sweet potato plant has really changed since my last report three weeks ago. Drum roll please......

Here is what the plant looks like today !! I'm loving the light green leaves. The roots are filling the container and the plant is starting to look like it belongs outside. I will put it in a nice spot in the garden and see what develops. I've never grown sweet potatoes before, so the adventure continues. 

Does anyone have any advice on growing these in the garden? Please leave a comment and share if you know what I should expect later this summer.

it looks so good, I have not grown sweet potatoes but they are popular down here. I will ask around!

That plant looks pretty enough for a decorative houseplant and yes, I love eating yams and sweet potatoes. My dog, Gizzy, likes them too, only he likes his with lots and lots of BUTTER ;-)
