Nov 1st I planted 4 rows of potatoes 50 per row a few days ago, Russet, Kennebec, Red Pontiac, it was 70 degrees here, it was 21 degrees 3 weeks ago weather is crazy. Cover potatoes with 6" of soil it keeps potatoes from freezing here. Tops freeze off there will be no tops all winter. About May 15 still no green plants, there will be 400 lbs of potatoes to did up. May 15 soil will be 65 degrees F time to plant something different where potatoes were. Fertilizer is 5-20-20. If you can not buy seed potatoes now then buy grocery store organic potatoes and plant them.
