sweet potatoes in colder climate 5(b)
I live in Colorado Springs, altitude about 6,400 MSL, zone 5b (near the Air Force Academy). Can I grow sweet potatoes here and how can I do it?

You can! You will be best doing this in container, though It would help to start them indoors well before the soil warms up under horticultural lighting. This will allow you to plant out a fully mature plant. This means that you will get a good harvest, even though your warm season isn't long enough for sweet potatoes.
