Not been any posts on here for a while but I thought I'd give a quick update as to what my potatoes are up to that I planted end of may, I did everything right and they're wild! Huge potatoe bushes I have now haha.
They look like they're about to flower too and with them being maris peers they flower purple!
Just wondered if I could get a last bit of advice and see when people harvest theirs as I've heard a fair few different things.
I've heard you can harvest before they flower, while they're in flower, after the flowers die, when all the leaves start dieing off and turning yellow?
Which is everybody's preference or do you all go for the grope around method?
