WE COULD NOT SEEM TO GET MORE THAN A FEW HOURS OF SUN AND HEAT HAS BEEN MISSING WHICH AS A RESULT HAS MEANT A DISASTER FOR OUR MAIN SEASON SWEET POTATO SLIP SEASON. SOME VARIETIES AS OF TODAY JUNE 19 ARE JUST BREAKING DORMANCY. WE WILL BE BLESSED WITH AN ABUNDANCE OF SLIPS STARTING NEXT WEEK, SO SEASON CLOSEOUT ORDERS WILL MOVE AS FAST AS WE GET THEM. WE WILL CONTINUE TO SHIP UNTIL JULY 15. OURS WILL BE PLANTED HERE ON JULY 1-4, TO BE DUG IN EARLY OCTOBER. AS COLD AS IT HAS BEEN IN MOST OF THE US IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO PLANT IF GIVEN PROPER CARE. WE ARE OFFERING INDIVIDUAL VARIETIES FOR HALF PRICE DURING THIS TIME FRAME AS WELL AS  THE ASSORTMENTS.  FOR EXAMPLE IF THE PRICE IS 6 SLIPS FOR $8.00 THEN IT WILL BE 6 SLIPS FOR $4.00. PLEASE LIST SECOND CHOICES AS SOME ARE VERY POPULAR AND OTHERS GO UNTOUCHED. POSTAGE IS NOT HALF PRICE!!!!

We will be making shipments on July 3, July 5, July 8, July 10, July 12  and the last date planned at this time is Monday July 15. The purple varieties are sprouting horribly this year with the  exception of Dingess Purple so we will have no purples as of this time.

SLIP QUANTITIES YOU MAY ORDER

You may only order slips in the quantities listed by each variety.  If we list 3 slips for $7.50, then you may ONLY order three (3) slips of that variety.  If we list 6 slips for $7.50; 12 slips for $14.00;  then you may order either 6 or 12 slips.  (You may NOT order 2 sets of 12 slips, etc.)  We ask that you please respect these limits so that everyone gets a chance to order some of the varieties that are in a more limited supply.  You may only order a total of 500 slips, but you may order 500 slips for Regular Season and another 500 slips for the Season Closeout Special.  Be sure that you include a separate shipping amount for each order and put them on two separate order forms.

 

We are very sorry if this is a problem to only be order small amount, however we feel it is much better to have a diversity of varieties.  The reason for this is for your ultimate success and not to put all your eggs in one basket so to speak and have 12 slips of one kind that may or may not be adapted to your soil and climate.

SHIPPING DATES

 

Slips usually are ready at Memorial Day and we start shipping when they are ready.  Please remember we fill orders in the order  in which they arrive in our office ( and depending  upon when the variety  you have ordered actually sprouts).  If you do not send your order to us until March or April or after  and your confirmation number is maybe 298, you will not get your slips on May 25. Do not expect them any sooner. We continue to ship  regular season slips until the third week of June. Orders are 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  telling when we will start mailing out the slips.  If you need to contact us 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.  You may NOT specify any individual varieties in your assortments.  All assortments will be our  choice from what is available.

 

SEASON CLOSEOUT SWEET POTATO SALE

 

All sweet potato slip assortments are offered at a 50% discount when shipped from June 25 through July 10, 2019.  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.  You may  not order specific varieties for  the Season Closeout Sale this year.  We need to spend that time caring for the growing young plants.  You may only order the assortments.
