Planted potatoes!

These are the seed potatoes we planted today. The quarter shows how small these are! I hope they aren't too small that they won't produce enough. It's all a learning process. These seed potatoes were saved from the harvest in early spring, and kept in the plastic bag in the fridge. Let's see if they do well.

they should do just fine, size really doesn't matter so long as there are eyes on them.

I usually take the bigger ones and cut them up until there are only a couple eyes per piece. Potatoes are pretty foolproof. Just don't put them in the same spot as last year.

thanks for the tips Kory, yes, they are in a fresh spot, no nightshade family grown here for 4 years.
