OUR POTATOES ARE ALL CERTIFIED BLUE TAG SEED POTATOES. PLANTING: Grow your own fresh potatoes. In early spring, cut each potato into pieces with 2 eyes in each piece. A rule of thumb-you can expect about 5 eyes per pound of potato. Allow pieces to stand a day or two to allow the cut sides to form a skin. Plant into soil at 50 degrees F. When plants flower, potatoes can be dug or hill dirt up around plant for more and bigger potatoes
