Winnie has three children and one granddaughter who all love the improved varieties of sweet potatoes that she grows. She received 10 bundles of vines last year and during the dry season kept the vines alive.
Here’s what Winnie said: “I’ve been keeping vines planted behind my bathroom and the bathwater then waters the vines. This means that I don’t need to look for new vines each year from friends since I am keeping the ones I have alive. I have been sharing this knowledge with my neighbours so that they know how to keep vines too.”
The vines were planted out in the fields during the rainy season and Winnie and her family can’t wait until it’s time to harvest.
