I've tried the "re-grow" your own celery thing last year, unsuccessfully.
I goggled it again and saw that I needed to change the water out daily (oops...didn't do that) and transplant it after only 5-7 days. Mine hung out in water for several weeks. And rotted.
So we'll try this one more time.
Speaking of trying...A few years ago I tried to get sweet potato slips started from the potatoes I'd bought at the store. Turns out the potatoes must've been sprayed to prevent sprouting.
I've never grown sweet potatoes in the garden and since I am living in sweet potato country, it seems like sacrilege not to make an effort. I know you can buy slips online but I really don't need 47,000 of the little buggars.
So where can I find an organic sweet in Charlotte North Carolina?
I've never been in a Whole Foods store before. It's nice in that "I've got nothing to do but spend a lot of money on specialty items" kind of way. Upscale. Pretty. It's a shopping experience. And since I generally hate shopping I ran in and out one day after work.
Sorry, Whole Foods...wasted on me.
Impressed? Not really. No offense, but the best veggies are the one you grow yourself. If you can. Or even want to. Yep, you got variety Whole Foods. I knew you would carry organic Sweets. Turns out you had 3 different kinds.
Uh Oh. Since I know absolutely nothing about sweet potatoes, I just winged it and bought 2 different varieties. I have no idea what they are. I guess we'll see what happens. I read that they don't like amended soil (got plenty of that) and that they need lots of space.
Any other advice from you experienced sweet potato growers?
