    I bought a pack of international kidney in the pound shop.
    There were 8 in the pack but they were quite small

    Expect the worst in life and you will probably have under estimated!

    No problem with cutting them. Let the wound dry and they will be fine.

    If they have lots of sprouts, no harm going a bit smaller... But now you have extra bag, you'll have no problem.

    Many a time spent on a potato dresser (riddle). Just your Donald Duck. Our top cut went off for bakers or chippers.

    I bought a 2 kilo pack of Pentland Javlin...27 seed potatoes.
    A 2 kilo of Charlotte had 28 seed potatoes.
    About half of them were large enough to cut in half.
    Bought them in B & Q. €5 per pack.

    And when your back stops aching,
    And your hands begin to harden.
    You will find yourself a partner,
    In the glory of the garden.
