I recommend going to the the "Maine Potato Ladies" website. Even if you don't order from her, she has lots of good info on there... I ordered a couple different kinds this year. Haven't seriously planted before, so looking forward to spring. Good luck!
This is my third planting of potatoes (I put them in buckets) I just plant what I buy from the grocery store. I made my own seeds this time around for white potatoes. I use those for potato salads, so they won't last long... but I don't grow a lot either.
Late summer I plant russets because I use those to store in the fall.
Take Lesa's suggestion... its best to find out as much information as you can now when making a decision. I would try to find something that is common for your zone and area.
I would love to hear more about growing potatoes in buckets or trash cans. I really want to have some potatoes this year but I don't really have a lot of room for them so if there is an alternate way, I'm all ears! Pictures would be great if you have them!
Welcome from a fellow Hoosier. This is the website for the Purdue Extension's home gardener links: www.ces.purdue.edu/GardenTIPS/. There is an EXCELLENT gardening calendar on the site that you can download, but the site's being slow right now so I can't give you the link directly.
