Thank you for all your years of information on starting, growing, harvesting, curing, and storing sweet potatoes. I've had a very successful year of growth and a big harvest is in the cellar now. This year I built a hoop arrangement over my raised bed using bent over conduit and some old 2x4 fencing. The vines trailed up and filled in, out and sideways to make a huge amount of photosynthesizing green with a profuse amount of perfectly purple blossoms. Clipping it all back took an hour or so, but the results were superb. Thanks again!
