my seed potatoes are here

Root Vegetables, Seeds

I ordered two varieties of potatoes this year. Instead of the 4 or 5 I usually order. I am trying to cut back…. They look really nice. Burbank Russet and German Butterball from Fedco Moose Tubers.

Some years I have planted them right away. Other years I wait and let them sprout a bit. I am wondering what is the “correct” thing to do.

Another thing I’m wondering about is different planting methods. I have always planted in trenches then back filled as the spuds sprout. I end up with potatoes growing in a flat bed. Fields I see have potatoes growing from the tops of hills. I’ll have to look this one up.
