Grow Your Own Sweet Potatoes

Something we can always be thankful for is God’s perfect plan for our world and how we can grow and produce our own food to sustain us. If you’d like to try growing your own sweet potatoes, it isn’t as hard as you might think! With an aluminum pan, some sweet potatoes, and dirt you can start your own sweet potato slip and turn that into sweet potato plants! This is a fun little way to show how we can sustain ourselves with a little patience and work!

If you want a sweet potato side dish for your holiday meal but this one doesn’t appeal to you, there are many other delicious options for you.
