Accidental Sweet Potatoes in Central Fl

J Sousa
August 9, 2019

In preparation for a boxed garden, I was filling it with compost. Most of it was from our bunny. I had a sweet potato dry up in fridge and threw that in. It wasn't long before my box was full of vines.
I have spent what seems like an eternity cutting back vines that escape the box. I have added more compost (bunny and leaves) over the roots wherever I can.
How do I know when to start digging it up? I didn't pay any attention to when it started growing.
Any advice on growing potatoes in general also welcome.
