I bought a bag of seed potatoes at a local farm/garden center but didn't get much in the way of advice on how to plant them. I know the basics as far as planting with the eyes facing up, the soil requirements and such. My education need is how to cut the potato (thick? thin?) and prepare it for planting. At the garden center when I asked how to cut the potato I was told "with a knife"...humorous, but not followed by a serious response to my question. Had I not already paid for the potatoes, I probably would have walked out. I sure would appreciate some input from you potato experts!!
