Last year, I planted 1 lb of yukon gold seed potatoes. Like many great garden discoveries, this was completely unplanned. I saw some seed potatoes at the local hardware store, and I decided that I wanted them. I didn't even have room in the veggie garden, and these potatoes were planted in my front flower bed! It turned out that this was a great decision, because the potatoes did really well!
This year, we've planted 10 lbs of yukon golds, 2 lbs of red pontiac, and 2 lbs of kennebecs. (We got a bit more ambitious this year!)
Planting seed potatoes isn't very hard, depending on your method.

I planted all of the potatoes 18" apart to allow plenty of room for growth.
I purchased my seed potatoes at Sow True Seeds, and they have more information on growing potatoes on their website.
