First potato shoot to show from slips planted ten days ago.

Growing Sweet Potato Slips in water.

And the rain came down and I was stuck in the shed!

Later … somewhere over the rainbow rainbow.

  1. Great pics of bits and bobs and odds and ends. Love the rainbow image.

    “Growing Sweet Potato Slips in water.”

    When you transplant the sweet potatoes, do you cut off the caps (which would seem a bit tedious) or plant them with the caps attached?


    1. The caps are screw threads from the cream bottles we use in the business, so as this is my first time growing them in any way I guess I will pull the slips back through the holes then plant them in soil.
      I’ll update their progress as we go along.

  2. Wow you have a gorgeous home and outdoor garden, pond, landscaping, etc, Ark! Your photography is getting better each month too! Well done. πŸ™‚

    Btw, I think I MAY have finally gotten “banned” from Pastor Mel’s blog! Oh oh. Woooohoooo!!!! πŸ˜†


      1. He actually seemed to maintain his cool in this response. πŸ™‚ Methinks you might be better served to move on and zero in on someone else. There’s plenty out there.

        1. You are right Nan. I suspect he will not reply to my response to this — there was certainly no reason for me to address every single distortion and lie he wrote in this lengthy, lengthy reply that was “so simple.” πŸ™„πŸ˜„ He’s a waste of time. In fact, most are.


  3. A double rainbow, huh? I don’t know why God has to remind us twice that he won’t flood the whole earth again. Geez God, we heard you the first time. πŸ™‚

    Nice photos as always.
