I drop each spud in a deep hole then slightly earth up, then as growth shows, earth up more.
I form ridges and furrows. Plant the seeds in the furrows and cover seed with every secon ridge. Every other is used to earth up when sprouts are 6 to 8 inches tall.
I use a method similar to what No expert does.
That was how my late dad sowed the spuds at home in his garden. Old ways are nearly always best.
remember as a kid in the early 60s with my late dad. earthing up spuds with my triang weelborrow
I always dig & plant...I place them in the trench as I am digging, then throw the soil forward to cover them.
