Can you over-chit potatoes? Not grown potatoes before.  Mine have been chitting for ever but it's so cold haven't wanted to plant them.  

Well you dont want long shoots/chits-is it just give them a head start-dont over obsess about this -get them planted soon

That is why daffs are up now -tis nature at work
