Potatoes Have Arrived

Today, the potatoes finally arrived. There are 30 seed potatoes in all: 10 All-Blue, 10 Red Pontiac, and 10 Kennebec (white). I am actually splitting this order so 15 of these are mine, the other 15 belong to Chris (my boss who supplied me with the horse manure). I plan on planting some now to get "new" potatoes in July and then plant the rest to get a fall crop. The only potatoes big enough to split are some of the All-Blue. I think these are really cool looking:

I have started the sprouting process, but I am new at this so we will see how this goes. With a little luck I will have them in the ground by next week.
