When to Harvest Potatoes.. for New Growers
I should have watched the video first
I really wasn't sure when to harvest my potatoes, so after weeks and weeks I decided I'd do it today
I was pleased to see I actually had potatoes!, but I was a little dismayed that many seemed waterlogged.
We've had a lot of rain so I thought perhaps I'd waited too long
Not many, I left a few behind
a little wash?
Yay .. potatoes!
then I watched the video and it's clear the best time to harvest is when they flower!
There you go
Now I know
If you're a first-timer like me, don't despair.. just know to wait until your plants flower.. and add extra soil also as that will help
