To chit, place the seed potatoes in indirect sunlight at 65-75 degrees. The pieces should be eyes up. After about 5-7 days, the seed pieces will begin to sprout.If there are more than 3 sprouts per section rub off all but three and plant.
Because I use smaller pieces of potato for planting than many people do, I plan for each small section planted to produce 1.5 pounds of potato. This estimate may be a little low but it is an easy way to figure out how many plants we need each year and about how many potatoes to keep set aside for seed purposes
Take one quart of dandelion flowers and four cups of water and boil gently for about an hour. Remove from heat, cover and let sit overnight. The following day strain and squeeze liquid out of flowers and throw the flowers to compost. Put the liquid back in the pan and add 1/2 of a chopped lemon and 2 cups of sugar. Simmer until a thick honey like consistency. Cool and place in tightly closed jars. Store in fridge.
