Really teeny tiny potatoes.
« on: October 17, 2020, 10:57 »
Good morning everyone,  is it possible to get a crop from the really small potatoe we dig up, about the size of a marble or your thumbnail, and if so how? ::)

Cheers,   Tony.
I may be growing OLD, but I refuse to grow UP !

Possible, yes. Advisable or worthwhile, no.

There will always be the risk that they are infected with virus, hence Nobbie's comment that it's not advisable.

You will always have some of these 'volunteer' spuds left in the ground after harvesting your crops; they do produce plants the next but invariably they are in the middle of a bed of something else (as you've rotated your crops) and so I just pull them out for this reason too.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...
