Maybe Just a Tad Late?

I have never grown potatoes and decided to expand my seed genre this season. I purchased the potato seeds and they arrived about two months ago. I put them in the garage to stay cool and dormant and had every good intention of planting them in a timely manner.  Well, the weather is heating up here and I decided the potatoes needed to be divided and placed in the soil. When I opened the potato bags, I was surprised to find little anemic shoots reaching for the light in our dark garage. Yikes! I hope they will still grow into productive plants.

Also needing planting are the tomatoes, celeriac, basil, lavender, cabbage, sage thyme, artichoke, peppers, and eggplant starts.
