Plant Potatoes With Wet Newspaper

I was brought up in Wales UK. in the late 40's, so everything was scarce or 'on ration'. When potato planting time came around, we always saved old newspapers to soak in water the night before to bed the drills before popping the seed potato in and covering with soil. Sure enough, we always had a bumper crop.
