  1. Gardening and Agriculture
    I haven't planted taters in over 25 years and I can't remember if I planted them whole or if I planted them cut in quarters. I remember something about putting "dust" of some kind of powder but don't remember what it was or why. I will be planting baking potatoes from the store that sprouted...

    Besides the 'Cool, Dry Place' to preserve potatoes, you can also add an apple or two in a dish set on top of the crop.
