Each year I try a new plant or two. This year, I found seed potatoes on sale and thought that I would at least try them. I followed the directions on the box for the seed potatoes, which basically involved cutting each of the potatoes into about 1 inch pieces, each with one eye (sprout). I left them on the counter overnight.
I had a couple of plastic pots from last year that didn’t hold up very well. I cut rectangular holes out of the sides of the one that was in worse condition so that I would be able to see the progress or get some potatoes out without disturbing the others. I put that pot inside the pot that without the holes cut in it.
