growing potatoes... I am never successful with potatoes, except when I chuck them in a hole and forget about them!

Multiply your store bought sweet potatoes - place 1 sweet potatoes in a bucket of moist soil. As slips (shouts) appear, pull out place them six at a time into 20 gallon buckets. Wait 4 months, dump bucket, get 3 to 4 gallons of organic homegrown sweet potatoes per bucket.

Cut potato in half. Place cut side down into a container with enough water so that about an inch or two of the potato is submerged. After 4-6 weeks, you should have a nice growth of little baby sweet potato plants: slips. Some will already have roots & are ready for planting. Remove the sprouts by snapping them off at the point where they emerge from the sweet potato tuber. Pinch off the rootless ones, place in water & in a few days they will root also.
