Default 2017 TPS tubers and seeds

Last year I started on the TPS(true potato seed) train, I started them too late for my area but I did harvest a few mini tubers. I planted them a few weeks ago and they are loving the weather. I also started more TPS and they need to be transplanted in a few days.
Here's a few pics of the tubers from seed


Here they are today






TPS 2 weeks ago


Pics from today

Hi there Rajun Gardener. Growing from TPS is challenging and rewarding at the same time. At the end you will have unique potatoes. The seed train is going again this year. Did you sign up?

Hey Wendy!

I didn't sign up, between buying and swapping I have more than I can grow. Tree leaves was generous with her seeds, I don't know how she grows so many varieties.

You've been quiet on KPP, I guess it's the weather.

Nothing to talk about in KPP since not growing potatoes yet. I started peppers indoors as I always do right after new year. The seedlings are very small.

I have lots of potatoes for seeds and TPS seeds as well from shared to gifts, trades etc. I donated some TPS for the train as well. Tree Leaves is very generous, she sent me a box of her tubers too. I think she liked playing bee that is how ended with so many TPS berries.

How are your 1st year tubers growing?

The pics above are all Sarpo's, I have a few others that need to get planted soon. I also have tubers from Tree leaves and William that needs to be planted. I'm trying to figure out how I'll grow so many varieties and keep them separate. I also want to try some direct seeding but I'm not sure I'll get to that this year.

I've got tomatoes growing in the green house, here's a video and it has some TPS seedlings.
