WICHE: Sweet Potatoes ready for the garden

-A A +A
By Jeneen Wiche

Sweet potatoes should be happy in Kentuckiana this season…they love the heat.

In fact, mail order and local sources are only now getting their slips in for sale. Sweet potatoes are tropical by nature but can be grown successfully in Kentuckiana as long as we wait until it is warm (nighttime temperatures in the 60s) and as long as we have at least 150 frost-free days.

We are off to a good steamy start so we should have a hearty harvest by first frost this fall.
