potato project 2014 V

i stumble don another unused pot and so went out to plant another purple valley for the seed potato project and finished just before yet another round of rain hit the area...all of the pots i am using have ample drainage holes that i drilled in the bottom but it has been s saturated with rain here recently that the pots are waterlogged and i am afraid the tubers will rot...particularly the ones that were cut and calloused...were they calloused enough? i propose to go fishing around in those pots to see...they shouldn't have sprouted yet and even if they have a little time out of the pot drying shouldn't hurt given the circumstances...there is more work to do here on this project before month's end...i still have ten drops to find homes for...i may be purchasing pots yet this season.
