Potato Help - When to pick (pluck)
First year growing potatoes.
I bought some organic potatoes at the store (our favorite)
Cut some up and planted them. - This was in the Winter if I am not mistaken.
First Question - Is there a problem with this method. I mean not buying "starters" from the nursery. Someone had mentioned that doing this might produce potatoes with high levels of toxins (????) Any truth to this? They are organic from start to now.
OK so I planted them and they grew. I pile dirt on top (mound) and they grew, I pile more dirt and they grew.
Ok When do I stop this Pile/Grow Process and start looking for potatoes. How do I know that they are ready? Size/Ripe??
I think that they have been in the ground maybe 2 - 3 months. But not sure. I have to start a garden log.
