Gardens
Are there any gardeners among us? If so, I have a question: My might-as-well-be-mother-in-law gave me a sweet potato vine. I asked her if it would produce sweet potatoes, and she said no, that it would just be a pretty vine. She usually knows her stuff about food and plants and such, but it just didn't make sense to me why it shouldn't make potatoes. Huh Has anyone ever grown one of these? What were the results? This will determine where I decide to plant this thing. If it'll make potatoes (Which I want it to), I'll plant it by my tomato plants. If not, then I'll put it somewhere it can be seen and admired.

Smile Thanks, but that dude had a bunch of sweet potatoes to plant. Mine is just a vine- a purple vine. I googled some things, and so far it seems to me that this is just going to be a chance. It might produce potatoes, or it might just be an ornamental vine. Either way, it'll be fun to find out! Smile

RE: Gardens
It could possibly produce potatoes but they aren't generally fully developed nor very good as compared to their full-sized version. Read this: http://www.bhg.com/advice/gardening/annu...ontainers/
