Both were listed as having approximately the same growth needs and harvest time.

The Yukon Golds bloomed some time ago and I can now find small (1 1/2 inch) potatoes if I dig down a few inches with my fingers. The foliage on both of them has been lush and healthy. However, the reds have never bloomed, some of the foliage is beginning to turn, and I find no little potatoes.  No bugs or other insects are noted.

Why have the red-skins not bloomed, and isn't blooming necessary in order for the little potatoes to develop? Should I continue to wait or discard them and plant something else?

But i've just read on burpee's facebook about some who soaks them before planting???  And I'm conidering dusting my taters with sulfur before planting.     Should I dust the cuts before drying OR does it matter?? Or forget it and use my sul-po-mag ??
