Potatoes from True Seed

Polarca gave me TPS, the ’ literally everything mix’ it is called. Whatta bangers. Barely two cm in, they start throwing taters out!!!

First attempt to grow GTS TPS in 2024 was in trays of unheated soil blocks. Only one seed germinated in that trial. The rest of the seeds i put in soil blocks on a heat mat set to 85F. Germination was much better but still only about 30%. Some of the seedlings were so weak and puny I discarded them. I potted up the remaining seedlings to give them some more time to grow on. Lots of variation with a few clearly more vigorous contenders.
