sweet potatoes grown in a bag
I tried growing sweets in a grow bag this year and as requested I will share my results. I bought a large bag online, made one out of burlap and an old woven plastic bag, and used a fabric bag for the third batch. The large store bought bag was grown in full sun and I harvested 6 small but nice regular sweets and about 15 ugly long fingerlings. The homemade bag ended up getting shaded as a nearby plant grew so quickly I forgot it was there :( The results were an embarrassing 1 regular potato and 6 small fingerlings. The variety of these bags were beauregard, The third bag has a unnamed bush variety from a friend. I haven't harvested this one yet as it was planted later. Sad, kind of embarrassing results. Anyone else tried this? If so how did yours fair?
