I planted sweet potato a couple of months ago and vines have started growing and no tubes, should I pull them all out and start again or is there something I can do to save them .

They say about 15-17 weeks to grow. You should have some tubers developing after about 10-12 weeks. Mine are about 10 weeks old and I dug out one about 5 (?)
