You can grow sweet potatoes in a wooden barrel. Cut off your sprouts, leaving a medium amount of potato on the sprout. Get your wooden barrel and place some small size rocks in the bottom of your barrel. This is so you will have good drainage when it rains or you water it.
Then start layering your soil about 12 inches on your rocks. Layer the potato sprouts about 8 to 10 inches apart in the barrel. Keep adding soil and potato sprouts all way to the top.
If it is a dry year, you can water them. Make sure you have good drainage from the bottom. Just pull off the tops and turn over the barrel when ready for harvest in the fall before frost.
