2014 SWEET POTATO ORDER FORM

Directly above this paragraph is the link to the Sweet Potato Order Form. Print out this form, fill it out, and send it to us through the USPS along with your payment in the form of a check or money order. We do not accept credit cards, PayPal, internet orders, e-mail orders, or telephone orders. The sweet potato order form has not been updated yet. You may use the 2013 Sweet Potato Order Form until we get it updated.

SWEET POTATO ORDER QUANTITIES

Please respect the limit on each variety as the largest number of that variety we list. This gives more people a chance to try some of the varieties. If we list 3 slips as the highest number, then that means that the most you can order is 3. This may be because the variety is in low supply, sprouts poorly, or is in high demand.

SWEET POTATO PRESERVATION PROJECT

Growing up in the mountain valleys of Idaho, sweet potatoes were something my family only got at Thanksgiving and occasionally Christmas. I can remember, as a child, counting the days until we were close to Thanksgiving and that tasty treat. Once I moved to Iowa and had a chance to start locating some of the rarer varieties and also had good conditions for growing them, sweet potatoes were no longer just on the dinner table at Thanksgiving. We enjoy them year round though Thanksgiving wouldn't be Thanksgiving without them. Once I started rounding all of the rarer and old time varieties, I soon discovered a few things. Most of the sweet potatoes sold in the local grocery store are really not all that tasty. The greatest discovery of all is that there are a lot of varieties, not on the main commercial lists, that are early enough that many folks can grow them in places where people thought they could not be grown. We have had reports back from customers from Maine to Washington and all across the North that have had great luck growing sweet potatoes. We have set up this sweet potato preservation project as both a preservation effort and as an educational tool. Our first and primary goal is to make sure as many varieties of sweet potatoes get preserved as possible. Our second goal is to spread the word to as many folks as we can to try growing some of the earlier sorts and find out what a great garden item they are. We will continue to search out any new (old) ones we can and propagate them and get them out to the mainstream public as quickly as is possible. We have learned that many rodents of all sorts love the plants and roots and we do lose varieties in the field at times. We maintain a backup pot of each variety in our greenhouse. We have no plans to ever reduce or eliminate varieties just because they don't sell. Neither do we intend to focus on just a few and mass produce thousands of plants of only those varieties. Our sweet potato collections are not driven by sales only, but by making sure each variety is maintained. Therefore, when you order assortments you are getting many of the types that have not been requested as individual varieties. Please don't think of these as being less worthy. They, for some reason, just don't have a catchy name or interesting history. Regardless of what varieties you choose, we are hopeful that you will have a great harvest and can have Thanksgiving every day at your house.

ORGANIC CERTIFICATION: We have achieved organic certification for our sweet potato plants. Our sweet potato plants are started in the field and are grown on soil that receives no chemical treatments. The plants also are not sprayed for insects or disease and are grown organically.


SEASON CLOSEOUT SWEET POTATO SALE

All sweet potato slip assortments are offered at a 50% discount when shipped from June 25 through July 10, 2014. If you are willing to wait that late for your sweet potatoes and are willing to take "pot luck" on the varieties which you receive, you may order them at this discount. Please indicate on the sweet potato order form that you are ordering the "Season Closeout Special". You may choose which assortment that you would prefer. We will try to honor that choice if at all possible. In an effort to spend more time producing our 2015 root crop, we will not be offering individual varieties in the "Season Closeout Sale" this year. We need to spend that time caring for the growing young plants.

SWEET POTATO CHALLENGES

WOW! How can moles, voles, rabbits, deer, gophers, field rats, field mice, house mice, ground squirrels, and ground hogs all be wrong? Each of the above has had a serious impact on our crops over the years - - - each in a different way. All of them seem to travel for miles to eat a part of the crop. We'll keep fighting and have conquered some (well, at least temporarily). Regardless, there isn't a crop in our garden more pursued than the sweet potatoes. The animals must know something that is good. If only the creatures would pursue the weeds with such enthusiasm!!

POSTAGE CHARGES

Orders are all filled on a first come, first served basis. We will make an announcement on the "News and Updates" page of the website around the end of May when we will start mailing out the slips. If you need to contact us by e-mail, regular mail, or telephone concerning your sweet potato order, PLEASE include your sweet potato confirmation number. Please be patient! There are no guarantees on shipping dates. We cannot ship them to you any earlier than this because they are not ready here for shipping until those dates.

NOTE: All sweet potato slips are certified organic. You will get named varieties in your asssortments. Each bunch (variety) of plants will be labeled with the variety name on a white plastic 4 inch label. Please pay close attention to the maximum limit you may order of each assortment. If you are ordering both the "Regular Season" slips and the "Season Closeout Special" you may order the maximum limit for each shipment. Please be sure to submit your order for the two shipping dates on two separate order forms with separate payment for each order. ALL ASSORTMENTS ARE OUR CHOICE ONLY!!

NOTES

Each customer may only order a TOTAL of 200 slips for the "Regular Season". You may also order a TOTAL of 200 slips for the "Season Closout Special". Be sure that you include a separate shipping amount for each order and put them on two separate order forms.


Quantity limit on orders:  The maximum number of slips you may order of a variety is only the maximum number of slips listed for each variety. (Example: Patriot is sold as 3 slips for $7.50. You may only order 3 slips. You may NOT order two (2) sets of 3 slips. A total of 3 slips is all that you may order of this variety.) We do this so that more people have a chance at getting to raise some of these rare types and because some varieties do not sprout well.

We try to limit descriptions about flavor as flavor varies depending upon the individual's taste and also upon the soil type and the climate where the variety is grown. Your best bet is to keep trying different varieties until you find the one that fits your taste buds.

We are not using days to maturity for the sweet potatoes. Sweet potatoes need hot weather. Days to maturity is very subjective. 90 days in my native Idaho mountain valley and 90 days here in Iowa are not anywhere close to the same. Heat units or growing degree days is the only way to accurately determine maturity. (Please see a detailed explanation of this on the beginning sweet potato catalog page of this website under the "Sweet Potato Growing Information".) Our plants here are usually planted the last week of June and are dug the last week of September (or about 90 days). We will use the following criteria for maturity.

Maturity Criteria

Early:  At 90 days here in Iowa these have reached full size.

Mid-season:  At 90 days here in Iowa these still have roots that need a few more weeks to bulk up.

Late:  At 90 days here in Iowa these only have about 25% of the roots mature.

Very Late:  Really nothing much at 90 days. These need around 140 days.


Plant Growth Type Criteria

This is our criteria that we use to classify the varieties' growth habits. This is from data gathered at our farm, taking measurements from the location where the plant is growing to the distance the vines cover on one side of the plant.

Very Vigorous:  Vines go to 12 feet or more.

Vigorous:  Vines usually go from 8 to 12 feet.

Vining:  Vines go from 6 to 8 feet.

Semi-Bush:  Vines go from 4 to 6 feet.

Bush:  Vines are less than 4 feet.


For short season areas, success will come easier if you plant on black plastic that has been layed down several weeks prior to setting the slips out. Remember they like it hot. Those who live where summer night temperatures are usually less than 60 deg. F, should probably stick to early varieties only and definitely use black plastic to grow them on. Clear plastic tunnels with both ends open are also great in cooler areas.

Beetlejuice (formerly W-392):  Mid-season. Semi-bush, deep cut leaves, readily flowers. Copper pink/orange skin, pale orange flesh, good yields.

In 2013, with less beetles, we still could find this variety covered with Japanese beetles to the point where it glistened from 200 feet away. They attracted to it two years in a row. It made spraying easy as the bugs concentrated on this variety. Saved spray (organic Pyganic), saved time and still this variety produced a great crop. Only problem is that it is not a prolific sprouter. 6 slips for $7.50

Georgia Jet:  Early. Vining, normal leaf, pink/red skin, orange flesh, above average yield. While this continues to be a popular variety, I find it to be one of the least desirable ones to grow. Yes, it is early. Yes, it gets big, but it cooks up mushy. It doesn't have the flavor or resistance to cracking that some of the other varieties we carry have. We sincerely hope that you will try some of the more flavorful heirlooms that we offer.

Georgia Red:  Mid-season. Semi-bush, normal leaf, tan/orange skin, deep orange flesh, above average yield.

Indiana Gold:  (Heirloom Variety) Sent to us by Mark Jennete. Early. Vining, normal leaf, golden skin, orange flesh. Vines that set roots early. 6 slips for $7.50
