Sixteen Red Pontiac potatoes were planted in the outdoor garden. The potatoes were chitted for about month in the greenhouse to form a strong root system. Spacing in the row was about one foot center to center. Row width on each side is two feet. The center of the plant was marked with a stake, since come harvest there is no vegetation left and fork damage is lessened knowing the potato center. Expectation is 4 pounds from each plant.
