Default Sweet Potatoes in containers test

I'll call it a success but I need to change a few things next year.

This spring when it was time to plant the garden was soaked so I tried some in a container to see if it was worth the effort. I'm surprised they did this good considering too much rain washed out the fertilizer and then the drought we went through. I didn't help either by not watering or fertilizing them like I should have. I think they would still be growing if I paid more attention to them.

Next year I want to use real soil mixed with potting soil and maybe perlite to allow drainage. Fill the containers up to the top to have more room for roots. Fertilize and water regularly.
