Get them in the ground right away quick!!! What are you waiting for.... Christmas!!!! I dunno which varieties you bought but most would probably be able to produce something for you by the end of the season and even if what they produce isn't huge.... I'd think you'd still be able to use what you get to start your own from slips next year. Go on now.... git!!! Git those in the ground somewhere!!! It'll take you all of 5 minutes planting them in the ground!!! After you get them planted.... take a photo and post it somewhere and I'll add some notes I've got of starting your own for next year.

Hmm... Well, I think what I am waiting for is soil. I'm growing some of my potatoes in burlap sacks this year, and they seem to be doing very well. I want to do the same thing with the sweet potatoes--I figure, as the weather cools, I could move them into the greenhouse to extend the growing season...but I'm out of soil right now.

I wouldn't wait for soil.... potatoes and sweet potatoes aren't that picky. For white potatoes.... or blue or pink.... just dig a trench anywhere you've got space and stick the starts in the ground and mound them up when they hit about 8" in height. Sweet potatoes are even easier.... you just dig a little hole and plant them in the ground anywhere there's full sun. You can even plant them right in your grass if you want. I guess the only thing I'd do to make it easier harvesting the sweet potatoes would be I'd work the soil a little bit down about a foot or so. Just break it up and add any sand you've got laying around and you should be fine.

My reasoning is that I could move them into the greenhouse come fall and extend their growing season.

That is okay... I entered a frog photo that I'm proud of.

For about five seconds or so, as my eyes scanned the photo, I thought, "What do you mean "easy"?"...then, I saw it! Great shot.
