    Thanks, I would be quite happy with greens only. I will give it another try. Keith.

    Re: SWEET POTATOES

    I let my sweet potatoes go 2 years back because I ended up with that aweful grub/beetle.

    Now that I've let things lay fallow for a while, I'm going to plant again, but rotate properly this time.

    Grabbed a orange one from Coles (I know you prefer the purple Len) and had no trouble getting it to sprout using the cut in half and plonk end in water technique. Just waiting for some decent leaves on the slips before I cut tehm off and plant.

    Previously I was growing the puple and the orange. I like the purple baked, but don't like it any other way. I'll plant that again soon too. Some of my tubers last time (ones I missed) got bigger than a basketball :shock:. Only downside (other than the beetle) was that the rats found the plants and used to burrow for the tubers :evil:
