Desprouting Seed Potatoes

When storing potatoes over the winter for spring planting, should sprouting potatoes be continuously desprouted or is it better to let the potatoes grow lengthy sprouts and plant them as such. It seems like taking the sprouts off repeatedly might sap the tuber of energy, but I have heard of old timers taking the sprouts off during the winter. Thank you for your time.

Transplanting trees in Bandon

I recently bought property *10 acres* south of Bandon but north of Port Orford. I have easements all over my property, mostly Bonneville Power Association, as their lines take the back 5 acres into easement. I want to remove starts of cedar, pine, and fir from the eased property and place those starts on the un eased property, where I want them to grow. Can I just go pull up the young trees after a rain and plant them with any expectation of survival? Do I need to dig them? Can I get trees thru Oregon state forestry service to plant on my acreage? At what cost? Do I have to dig the trees from the back property? BPA will have those tree starts mowed down by BPA crews in the next year maybe as long as two. I would like to save the trees, BPA will destroy them if I do nothing. I want some more cedar *port orford cedar* as it seems that it is blighted and my small stand on my property is dying. Need some good advise.

agave stress in Missouri Valley, Iowa

i have tried on several occasions to grow the winter-hardy varieties, and each has met with death. I have a front yard that I made all sand and gravel to a depth of 12 inches to have great drainage. I have a great variety of plants from sagebrush to imbricata and ball cactus, rabbit brush, that have grown well for 6 years, but the agaves have not fared well. I am not sure if it is still the moisture or other reasons. We have banana yucca and red yucca that has survived here but does not appear to get any larger than when they were planted. Would anyone know the reason for this, as well?
