Planting old potatoes

Post  greatgranny on 4/3/2016, 9:36 pm

I have some left over potatoes that are obviously not the greatest now.  They are sprouting - some have about 2-3 inches of sprouts.  Will it be okay to cut the potatoes and let them cure for about 1 day and then plant them?  If so, should I remove the largest sprouts or leave them as is?

I have planted old potatoes with some success.  If the sprouts fall off I think there will be enough new sprouts to come to grow on.  It is worth a try, nothing to lose.

I was thinking that maybe there are other sprouts that have not appeared yet.  Oh well, like you said - nothing to lose. I am going to get a few more seed potatoes just in case these don't work.  I am so itching to get out and plant but it is now snowing.   Rolling Eyes
