OK, here are some pics from our Beauregard sweet potatoes. They are doing really well, despite some of the vines getting nipped by some varmits. I am suspecting rabbits more than deer, due to the fact that the area is kind of fenced in. As you can see, I'm using my fishing line/caution tape hybrid fence.
@MuddyMess_8a, OK, I guess then I should maybe pull up gently on the vines to keep them from trying to root, to allow the central part of the plant to make more larger tubers? We planted them about 6 weeks ago, so they were started kind of late, so we prob should just let the central root do the producing.
We planted them straight into the ground, no hills, although we've been piling up dirt around the bases.
We planted out over 200 regular potatoes, but it looks like just about all of the tops have died back. Don't know if they did that because of all the cool, wet weather we had in April or May. Or maybe the tater beetles got after them too much. We also had a freeze on May 16, while a lot of the plants were blooming. We've been digging up some decent size spuds, but not as big as we had hoped.
