If I can find them, I'm going to attempt to plant some sweet potato slips. I don't like sweet potato but hubby does.

Anyone try to grow them? Any tips or are they worth even trying to grow?

Sweet potatoes in Canada? Do you have a green house?

I wouldn't buy slips. Just stick a couple of toothpicks into a yam and suspend it in a glass of water. When it sprouts, you cut it apart and those sprouts are your slips. Like cutting apart an Irish potato and planting the eyes.

I've planted a 'salsa' garden before: onions, peppers, tomatoes, cilantro. Also tried pesto, marinara, heirloom tomato, and three sister gardens.
