The sweet potatoes arrive fashionably late

I was beginning to worry about the last item of my seed/plant order. Everything on my order had shipped except for the sweet potato plants.  Well, finally they arrived yesterday.  With a touch of thunder in the distance, I wanted to get these plants into the ground as soon as possible.  The soil was probably a bit too wet, so I tried to work the ground as little as possible.  Instead of planting the plants in hills or ridges, I just tried to dig a hole as deep as I could.    Each hole was close to 10-12 inches deep.  I’ll try and mound up the dirt around the plants as they grow to give them room to produce more potatoes.
