Planting fall potatoes

robinredchick(7)March 3, 2009

My grandpa used to plant fall potatoes every year and harvest them in the spring.

Are people still planting them?

I am interested in how to plant them and how to get ahold of some starts.

He probably used small potatoes from his spring potatoes as seed potatoes for the fall or he stored spring seed potatoes and used them. My grandfather did a similar thing but he dug them late in the season. I remember them drying inside. I haven't done fall potatoes cause I plant too many greens in the fall.
