Planning our gardening for next spring (already!). Does anyone know if there is anyone in the Albuquerque area who will be selling organic sweet potato slips in the spring?

Tator man

Not sure if they are organic sourced but I grew 250+ sweet potato slips from this guy. Five varieties. All did very well in our organic garden. Ordered several months early. They arrived right on time.

Oh yeah! I've ordered from this guy before. If I recall we didn't get anything out of those slips. But almost certain that was because of something on our end. If I don't find anything local, I'll likely get from him. Thanks for the reminder!

Slips are hard to find in my area. This season i made my own. It was very easy. Surprisingly easy.

Plenty of online know how. I just set it in a jar of water. Half in, half out. It did not take long for sprouts. When they were long enough i twisted them off and put them in water till they rooted.
 
Can you really tell me that we aren't dealing with suspicious baked goods? And then there is this tiny ad:
