Hi Wendy -

Do you plant the seed potatoes any deeper in September than you would in 
the spring?

The reason I ask is that August & September here in NoCal are usually 
the hottest months, and doing some reading I find that potato 
germination in hot weather is chancy.

I'm wondering if deeper planting will help.  I also read that wetting 
the surface of the soil, but not watering deeply, also helps cool the 
soil to assist in germination.
