VideosYams Take a Look at my Yam Beds! by David The Good October 10, 2017October 9, 2017 written by David The Good October 10, 2017October 9, 2017 They look like kudzu! It’s going to be a lot of fun digging these yams up. I think I’ll have to sell quite a few. No way we’ll be able to eat all of them.

June 23, 2014 Double-Digging A Garden Bed January 16, 2020 2 comments gary October 10, 2017 - 10:46 pm This is my first year growing Purple yams (Dioscorea Alata) in Southern California. I’m testing a few different ways; tubs, chain link fence and row cropping. Row cropping is the most awesome and I’ve been waiting for this video to see how yours are doing. It’s going to sound weird to people that haven’t grown them, but these plants apear to be social. The ones touching each other have the most vine growth. Hopefully that will transfer to the tubers. Thanks for sharing the row cropping method. Now that I have them going this will be my primary method moving forward. Reply Chris Johnson June 27, 2018 - 8:21 pm This gave me a chuckle…I picked up a huge tuber at the African market down the road for 4 bucks, and followed your recommendations using minniset method. Just now getting leaves popping up. https://www.amazon.com/African-Tuber-Yam-1/dp/B00L6J6Q7K/ref=sm_n_au_dka_US_pr_con_0_0?adId=B00L6J6Q7K&creativeASIN=B00L6J6Q7K&linkId=61734e6edf688cbf2b97650eb99380cf&tag=amazon-word-tracking-ads-20&linkCode=w41&ref-refURL=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.thesurvivalgardener.com%2Ftake-look-yam-beds%2F&slotNum=0&imprToken=XqA07CtcCRf7OFWSyphluA&adType=smart&adMode=auto&adFormat=grid&impressionTimestamp=1530144877262 Reply Leave a Comment Cancel Reply Notify me of followup comments via e-mail.
