first spring planting

when i opened the package of tubers form the usda i discovered that the three yema de huevo had already sprouted and needed to be planted as quickly as early this morning i went over to the house and turned about twenty pounds of composted manure into one of the half barrels ( not the one i grew potatoes in last year ) and got them going...the next few weeks will see the planting of the rest of the government potatoes for the storage experiment and, if i can ever retrieve my seed potatoes form the u s postal service, the reds going into the community garden and the backyard,,,i may have to look locally for seed potatoes if the bureaucracy fails...more as i navigate these tricky tuber shoals...
