"THE NEW PHONE BOOK IS HERE!" - actually, it's just my potato "seeds".

They arrived this morning. I'm waiting to open the box until my wife gets home from karate. The bed's ready, but we still have to wait until about 1 May, maybe a week earlier this season, to plant.

1. Well, actually, you don't.

My perennial-ized, overwintered potatoes now have shoots about an inch long, so the soil is warm enough for them to sprout. It will still take them a good month to emerge, by then the odds of a damaging freeze are smaller.

I'm going to plant most of my regular potatoes this weekend, weather and time permitting. Those will also take a good 4 weeks to emerge, unless the weather has a big warm up again, which isn't predicted.
