Tiny tips on taters: Buy seed potatoes from a local nursery May cut into 3-4 pieces but be sure there is an eye on each piece plant eye side up Plant 1 potato piece per square foot Plant 2-3 inches below the soil
Don't have deep soil? Plant in a pot OR on the ground underneath 2" of straw.
How to know when they are ready to harvest?
When the plants flower, the tubers are developed. If you harvest now, the skins will be soft so you must eat them right away.
When the plants "die back" and turn brown, the potato has cured underground and will store better. Harvest!
