Trying potatoes

Today, I finally planted the seed potatoes that I bought over a month ago.  I purchased them early, as potatoes are supposed to go in the ground around president's day.  But the Natural Gardener said they could go in now.

Well, then followed twenty degree days.  A few each week.  So, I decided to wait until the deep freezes seemed to be letting up.

Unfortunately, I cut the potatoes a few weeks ago -- and then the cold came.  I was only supposed to cut them a few days before planting them, so I'm not sure what that will mean. 

Many of the rat tail potatoes have small buds on them (I planted ten - two rows of 5), but very few of the red potatoes do.  We'll just have to wait and see.
