Back on the blogsphere

Hello readers
I'm sorry I've been so absent lately. My garden and my job have been demanding a great deal of attention. Also, I've been doing some thinking about the future of Agdes and my career, but more on that later.

Here is a picture i love of an experiment going on in my kitchen. I really wanted to plant sweet potatoes and after some research i found out making potato slips is the way to go.

The potatoes are a month old (you can see more pics on my flickr account). After the shoots grow a little bigger, you will have to cut them and keep them in water for a little longer until they develop a good root system. With roots and leaves, the stems are ready to go.

I promise a step by step instructions once i finish doling it myself. Stay tuned. Also, more blogging soon on recent Ag Dev events, worm composting, and urban agriculture.
