How long will the sets keep before planting? I was thinking of trying a small amount this year but I've heard planting time here is not until the end of April.

I'm in zone 6a and plant around St. Patrick's Day (March 17). If you order sets from The Maine Potato Lady or Gran Teton Organics, they won't ship till they are about ready to plant. I save fingerling potatoes over the winter to replant, they maybe a little wrinkled and sprouted eyes are starting to get long, and have had no problems.
