I live in the Southeastern part of Penn.. I would like to know, is it to late to plant sweet potatoes. Where would be a good place to purchase starter plants.

Sweet potatoes like warm weather, sandy soil and a long growing season - things that you may not be able to provide in PA. This is probably why you don't see sweet potato slips offered in your local garden center. But, you can certainly try growing them. Burpee Seed company offers sweet potato plants/slip in their catalog. Visit their website (www.burpee.com) for more information on ordering.
