My potatoes arrived today from Seed Savers Exchange and in these cool cotton sacks! French Fingerling and Desiree varieties. The descriptions sound fabulous and I've never grown fingerlings before, so this will be an experiment.
Charlie the cat is curious about sharing her sunny window desk with the potatoes and occasionally dominates them by laying right on top.
60-70 until sprouts develop (this technique may have been why my
potatoes from previous years didn't do so well.) You then cut the
larger ones, leaving the cut edges to dry for 2 days. This prevents
rotting when they first go into the ground.
