growing sweet potatoes - place 1 sweet potatoes in a bucket of moist soil. As slips (shouts) appear, pull out place them six at a time into 20 gallon buckets. Wait 4 months, dump bucket, get 3 to 4 gallons of organic homegrown sweet potatoes per bucket.
I love growing herbs! Propagating basil is really just as simple as cutting, stripping the lower leaves and keeping it in a water for a few weeks. Voila, a ready to plant basil and the mother plant will usually benefit from the trim.

Back in early April, I built 5 potato towers. I used wire, dirt, straw and a few seed potatoes for each potato tower. Fast forward about 5 weeks, and as you can see it was finally time to add a second layer to the potato.
