The Ugliest Nosegays

I always wanted to use that word in writing.  That, and posy, just don't come up much in my daily life.  Anyway, the point of the picture is to share with you my google-informed attempt at rooting sweet potatoes.  Anyone tried this?  They say to half submerge them in water and they'll root/sprout.  So far, I'm wondering if they'll just rot.


  1. I did that with my kids when they were young about 30 years ago. But we stuck toothpicks in them and rested the potatoes with the toothpicks on the glass filled with water. They grew like crazy. Also did it with my Brownie group.
