Gardening tipsHow you ever pre-sprouted your potatoes? This technique will give you a jump on the growing season. It is kind of like starting your vegetable seedlings inside. Just place your seed potatoes in a warm (70 degree or so) spot with a little indirect light about two weeks before you intend to plant them. When the sprouts are about 1/2-inch long, it is time to cut the potatoes into seed pieces, dip in sulfur and plant.
Well, I just had to laugh. I pre-sprout potatoes from every bag of them I buy. I just can't help it, it happens. In the dark of my pantry they always think it is spring.
