Potatoes

Planting

Seed Potatoes should be cut into 1½ inch cubes, with each cube having at least 2 eyes. Let the seed potato pieces dry 1-2 days prior to planting. When setting, place the pieces 2 in. deep 1 – 1 1/2 ft. apart. Potatoes need sandy soil with good drainage. As the above ground potato plant grows, cover with fresh soil, leaving a minimum of 3 in. exposed. In case of a late frost, cover the potatoes with a thick layer of straw.
