This is a great idea for those with limited gardening space! You won’t exactly be growing sweet potatoes in bulk, but you could make a great salad from the leaves and I like the idea of hanging plants being edible as well as beautiful. This is additional food garden square footage I had not yet considered. I need to do an experiment propagating some sweet potato vines soon so they have a chance to sprout before the weather gets warm!

Caution: while sweet potato leaves are not poisonous, common potato leaves are so don’t eat the leaves from those!
