Anybody have a line on a U.S.A. seed potato vendor who has stock
for autumn delivery? An online vendor would be frosting on the cake.
Even if I'm too late for this year, I'd like a reference to contact for
next year. December is traditional potato planting time in this part of
Florida; unfortunately, seedsmen in northern climes all seem to think
theirs is the only climate ;-) and are all sold out long before I'm
ready. In fairness, I do know that seed growers must operate within the
climate in which they're located.
In past years, I've planted "grocery store" potatoes with good
results, despite the advice of experts. I find that potatoes from
so-called "health" food stores are more likely to sprout profusely
because they've not been treated. In future, though, I'd like to be able
to plant known varieties instead of, "those nice little red potatoes I
got at '"Murphy's'".
