    ST. LOUIS, MO- The official start to summer is almost here. And you may be thinking about what to plant in your garden to survive the blazing heat.

    Well here's an idea and a contest if you're feeling competitive. The Gateway Greening Sweet Potato Challenge is happening now at Bell Garden.  Punita Patel from Gateway Greening joins KTVI’s Seth Lemon to explain the challenge.

    And Angela Vaugn, a Second Grade Teacher at Shaw Elementary and a third-grader at Shaw, Kenniya Waller give a demonstration on how we can start our own  sweet potato slips inside using mason jars!
