Blue tags are used for seed potatoes which meet or exceed minimum requirements of United States Standards for US Number 1 grade of seed potatoes.
This is always the hardest question to answer. We stock seed potatoes based
on our local weather (Spokane, Wa.) not other parts of the country. We sometimes
get lucky, and by the first week of March the weather can be good enough to have
the suppliers deliver them to us. Other years it can be the end of March or
later before we see them. Also Specialty and Fingerling Seed Potatoes on
average arrive about 1-3 weeks after we receive our common potatoes.
Our order desk prepares a list around the middle of February that we send to our suppliers based on what they hope to have available. These suppliers also get orders from many other customers. The suppliers fill these orders based on many issues (first come, weather, availability, etc.) So it is possible that we may not get all of what we ordered - they could be out of certain items by the time they pack our order to send to us.
Also there may be variaties that are available to us that we have had in the past but we do not order this year for several reasons (did not sell well previous years, supplier indicates to us that supply of that variety is not going to be good this year, etc.).
The best thing We can tell you is to watch our online store and when the item you are looking for is available you will see what we have, and you will be able to order them.
Also we do not keep a list of customers who want potatoes (or any other item). Though you can create an account and add them to a shopping list, then come back later when the item is in stock and complete your order.
