Harvesting Potatoes

pk333111June 10, 2013

Is it bad to harvest potatoes when the ground is wet? I was told that digging up red or white potatoes when the ground is wet is bad and that the potatoes will rot while in storage.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I have never heard of this. I suppose if you stored them wet and muddy, it might be a possibility. I've never had any of my garden potatoes rot.
