Grow Your Own Sweet Potatoes

The Vermont Community Garden Network's sweet potato slip sale is coming up this weekend (June 10 & 11) at Red Wagon Plants in Hinesburg. The fully-rooted slips are ready for planting - assuming our soil ever warms up - and all proceeds benefit our garden education programs!

We often have leftover slips to donate to community projects. Keep your eye on this forum after June 12 for more info.

Sweet potato

Sweet potatoes are ideal for Champlain Valley gardeners and farmers with sandy, silty, or loamy soil.
Each slip can produce up to five pounds of delicious Orleans sweet potatoes. Yum!
