Seed Potatoes

I received my seed potatoes in the post today. Thinking that it was something I ordered for Christmas it was a surprise to see a bag of potatoes. I have chosen Orla from the organic catalogue. Allegedly they have a high blight, scab and blackleg resistance. Not sure what blackleg is but happy to resist it. The potatoes last year didn't do very well so we will see how these fair. I have put them in egg boxes for chitting, with their little buds pointing upwards. They have to be put in the dark before sprouting. I will keep them there until they are ready for chitting and then take the lid off the box and give them some light.
