Short lived success of growing sweet potato

I had sliced off the piece of a sweet potato that had sprouted and planted it in a pot.  As luck would have it I saw it growing well.  When the leaves turned yellow I dug it up and was happy to see a full grown sweet potato.  That encouraged me to plant more cuttings of the vine that had grown. 

It did show results but only to be destroyed by mongoose that we have seen in our garden. We got nothing for this effort. 

We have now planted cuttings on a raised bed where I have noticed mongoose do not climb. Keeping my fingers crossed.  We should see results in a couple of months.
