When planting your potatoes, cut out an inch square chunk of the potato with at least one eye in it. Plant the chunk 4 to6 inches deep, 12 to 16 inches apart with the eye facing up and cover.
*Seed potatoes aren’t really seeds at all. They are full-size potatoes that are allowed to start producing shoots in the potato eyes. You’ve probably seen this happen when you’ve stored potatoes for too long.
Days to Harvest: 2 – 4 Months.
The entire crop is ready to harvest once the tops of the plants die off. You can leave the potatoes in the ground for a few weeks longer, as long as the ground is not wet.
Harvest carefully, by hand or with a shovel. Turn the soil over and search through for treasure. The tubers can branch out and digging in with a fork is a sure fire way of stabbing a potato or two.
