Sweet potatoe Rotting w/ slips HELP
I started several sweet potatoes for slips. 2 were my potatoes from last year and 3 are store bought. 3 of them have started slips, about an inch long. (2 of mine and 1 from store) All of them are rotting! I used the tooth pick in water method. What happened? Can I cut off the rotten part and keep going? I also started 2 in soil, but after 3 weeks nothing is happening. I have done this before and never had this happen. HELP I fear that if i start all over I will not have any slips, and they are way to expensive to buy to get enough to feed a family of 7!
