Video #3--Growing Sweet Potatoes In Containers-Digging -Curing-Storing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3E9RBp...

Finally harvesting my sweet potatoes in my large tub containers, really was a surprise harvest as I really wasn't expecting much since I got them in late in the season.

I like the idea of container planting , I placed 3-4 sweet potato plants in a large 2 1/2 h ft x 3 ft w tub , the depth is important for growing nice potatoes.

Don't forget always have drainage holes in containers or large tubs.

Digging them was pretty easy the soil was moist and ideal at the time.

Make sure you watch my other sweet potato video before the harvest here, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLFLEs...

Sweet Potato loves heat, sun and moisture which is ideal conditions for growing them.

There is several on the market today, but I had a space saving Vardamen sweet potato, beaurgard sweet potato, centennial sweet potato, and georgia jet sweet potato varieties this season.

The plants were rooted when recieved all I needed to do was to pot them in a good mixed soil and watch them grow, they vined quite nicely in the pots in the greenhouse.

Sweet Potato Plants are becoming a more popular vegetable plant.

I like to use raw honey and butter on mine, mighty tasty this way, and raw honey is very good for you , as is the sweet potatoes.

Harvesting of sweet potatoes can be done usually after the first real frost, which kills the vine but leaves the potatoes in good shape for harvest. You can also harvest a little sooner if you can't wait to try them . Just dig around where you planted very carefully , you find a few , then mound the soil back up around the potato.

Sweet Potato Plants are a beautiful vine in your garden, they also produce a beautiful flower, so watch for it.

Happy Harvest! #dianemummgardenvideos
