Very doubtful. Impossible unless they have "eyes".

Yes you can. You should see eyes beginning to form this fall and you can plant them then. The difficulty will be in getting a crop before the frost date. If you don't think you can do that, save them in the fridge until next spring/late winter and plant them then.

Every year I save some small ones and plant them the following late winter...they will have plenty of eyes by then...and don't cut the small ones just use whole....but by all means yes they will produce more potatoes for you.

Did not know you could save them in the fridge. I always thought you were supposed to about keeping them in the fridge. How long can they last in there?

Every year we always have some (usually little ones) left over in the crisper drawer of the fridge where we store some of the harvested potatoes. They are viable there 10 months...don't know past that cause we always plant them after 10 months. ( May to Feb.)
