In this video The Kids Learn To Plant Sweet Potatoes In The Garden. We love sweet potatoes! They are a delicious, nutritious food. There are so many sweet potato recipes that we can’t wait to try more. One of our favorites is sweet potato fries wrapped in bacon 🙂 Many people don’t realize that the sweet potato is not related to the irish potato. It is in fact in the Morning Glory family. Some people call them Yams, but they are not truly yams.It is not difficult to grow sweet potatoes in the garden from “slips”. Slips are the new shoots that grow on the tubers after it has been stored for a period of time. Remove the slip from the potato, bury the end of the slip in the ground and water it several times a day until it roots – about a week should be just fine. Give it about 1/2″ of water per week and they should do quite well 🙂 We hope to harvest nearly a bushel of potatoes from these plants this fall. Time will tell 🙂 Gardening is something that the kids just love about homesteading. They love all aspects of gardening from planting to growing to harvesting, but especially the eating of the produce 🙂 Watch “Kids Garden Harvest”: Please share, comment and like.

    But where did you plant the marshmallows that go on the sweet potatoes? 🙂 Never met a sweet potato I didn't like! Fried wrapped in bacon (isn't that illegal) so delicious, baked, sweet potato pie and more :)?

    These will be delicious deep fried and wrapped in bacon, baked, as candy yams or just about any way you eat them. Speaking of bacon, are you considering adding a couple of porkers??

    It seems quite windy there a lot of the time. Is it a fresh wind or is it very humid. It's a pleasant 76 here today with a refreshing breeze. Hope the potatoes do well.?

    I love sweet potatoes! I never knew that was how you do it. I put a potato half way in a glass and got it ta grow roots before!?

  • Fred Aldridge 1 year ago

    I never knew you started sweet potatoes from slips. I thought they grew the same way regular potatoes grow that is you plant seed potatoes. My uncle was a big fan of sweet potatoes he preferred them to regular potatoes. A big thumbs up for your keen gardeners. I will have to try sweet potato fries wrapped in bacon that sounds really good.?
