Take a look at this:

Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.
Some days it's not worth chewing through the restraints
Kennebec, Yukon Gold, Red Pontiac, and Red Norland.(Norlands are the earliest ones here and it gives some nice early eating while you wait for the others to mature)-----for sweets it is the white bunch type.---they grow right under the plant, no diggin up the whole farm hunting for them like the orange/yellow varieties do.
I'm sure there other good kinds, but this is what we have the best luck with in this area on our ground! thanks; sonny
Last year - German Butterball, Yellow Finn and Norland
This year - Butte, Elba, King Harry and maybe some others.
I try different varieties different years.

Put two rows in this last Sunday. They say for central Missouri on St. Patrick's day. When I lived in northern Missouri Good Friday.
I try to plant as close to the hundredth day of the year as I can.---some years that date is way off due to to weather---plant sooner IF ground is dry enough to work.---takes them a long time to come up, so the frost/freeze danger is usually over.--our frost date here in zone 5 is around April 14.---we have had snow later than that most years too!
Right now we still have snow drifts on some of the gardens, and ground is still froze underneath! thanks; sonny
