Looking for some sweet potato slips if anyone has any. I am going to start my own, but its too late to start from scratch.

How many you want, I have some Boureguards going that I didn't plant yet. I have Vardemans going now and started these but between rains and heat I just haven't planted yet. They are healthy and ready for dirt.

Lemme go get a Pic.

I'm back, here they are begging for dirt

check out the root systems, they need some dirt

Do you think that they would make it in the mail for a couple of days? You are not too far from me so it should only take a day or two.

How much $ do you need for shipping?

How did they look? I hope you put them in water and shade preferably inside till they perk up, then harden them off again before planting.

keep me posted.
