When I started farming here in 1993, yes 21 years ago, I had never grown sweet potatoes and only eaten them an handful of times. I grew them because I was asked for them. The grower from whom I got the cuttings gave me a 5 min guide to growing them. He said do not give them too much water. We did not but he really meant be very careful as I grew a 7 lb beauty that year. We can only grow one variety Diane, coming soon!
