comment First sweet potato crop — Now what?
Awesome! Gardening is fabulous for the science minded folks. It is very frustrating when you loose a seasons worth of efforts to a trial, especially on a small scale household garden. When you are able to test on a couple and be happy with results from a small sample size it does make it fun and exciting. Thanks for sharing your results.

comment First sweet potato crop — Now what?
I can only speak from my experience. Maybe post an update with a picture on your post if you are worried. I haven't had any mold. I do not clean mine, I keep them in grocery bags. If you do not get any responses you could try an experiment: wash one bad looking one, keep another dirty, take another and do what the other answer suggested with cooler curing and freezing. Then have a taste test for what worked best for you and your variety/taste preference.

comment What is a good alternative to pressure treated wood for raised beds?
Thanks, I assumed that the raised beds would erode if done in mounds. Great mention for the lumberyard, I'll have to check that out!

I started this post last night, before submitting it this morning and just saw: gardening.stackexchange.com/questions/3677/…. It looks like from the answers there is Cedar, any other wood suggestions?

Thanks @jmusser. If these containers are already established would you recommend top dressing them with this mix or replacing a couple inches?
