How quickly do seed potatoes need to be planted after cutting?
I've never grown potatoes before, and I have a tendency to get ahead of myself when I'm excited about a new garden project. I got my seed potatoes in the mail a couple days ago, and immediately pulled them out and cut them into the pieces I needed for my potato row.
Unfortunately in my excitement I forgot that I had planned on staggering my planting so that I would get a more prolonged harvest instead of a bumper crop of potatoes all at once.
So my question is: can my cut/scabbed potatoes last a couple weeks before planting (I cut them 2 days ago) or do I need to get them in the ground right away? If they will keep a couple/few weeks, what is the best way to store them for that time?
