Planting guide

You need to put potatoes in the dark and let them sprout before you plant them.

To prepare the ground for the potatoes dig a medium size ditch and pile the soil on the sides.
After they have sprouted space each potato about nine inches from each other along the line in the ditch.
After you have done this make a mound over the line by digging each side of the line and piling it onto the main line.

Plant your potatoes 12 inches apart.
