Dave I'm here, how is everything?
Going good thanks. What do you think about the sweet potatoes?
Awesome, I actually just helped put in some roma tomatoes, a bit late for me whatever.
So couple ways to approach it with the sweets
I recommend kinda doing it based on the weather
Usually though, I just keep the runners lifted up
most people panic and say don't let them root, but if the soil is ok and climate is stable(which for you I would imagine it is)
i would just let them go, they will produce, but chances are much smaller potatoes in addition to the main plant
to be honest i have seen and done both
and the years were pretty much different in regards XXXXX XXXXX nothing really consistent
I maybe wouldn't trim them
just keep them above, let them grow up but not root so substantially
main concern thinking back to your separate beds with the tomatoes and things would be making sure they have the space to grow
Great info Mike. The sweets are off by themselves. I try your advice and let you know the outcome in a few months!
Thanks as always. Dave
always a pleasure - are the tomatos doing ok this year so far?
I would even maybe trim one plant to see what the total production is for your growing area
just so you can see the difference
and make sure they have good drainage(which im sure youve already made sure of
Will do Mike thanks, XXXXX XXXXX cut it short, going to the airport to pick up our daughter.
Ok ill check back in in a few weeks, or you do the same
