RE: How to Grow Sweet Potato Crops Sustainably! Comprehensive Tutorial. One of My favorite and Most abundant Crops!
In your area, Texas, with all that summer heat, sweet potatoes are a great choice! I bet they have fewer pests than winter squash in your region, too. In my area, here in Oregon's Willamette Valley, the winter squash fill the same purpose as sweet potatoes, but I can grow them in our cooler conditions and I don't have a pest problem. I'm a big fan of crops that don't take any special processing to keep! Looking forward to your harvest -- and I hope you have some big lunkers in your sweet potato patch!
