Sweet Potatoes

Postby norriscathy » Fri Jan 27, 2006 5:54 pm

Really tired of the tasteless sweet potatoes we've been getting. Does anyone know where you can get slips of the old time varities; the ones that were sweet without butter & brown sugar?

PS: Macon; cows really like sweet potatoes, so this fit very, very well!

Seems like we've tried everything the seed catalogs sell. If you've tried a good one we'll sure give it a whril. Who seels Beauragards?

We usually get our's from Alabama Farmer's Co-op. Oklahoma Reds are good too.
