When do I plant and harvest potatoes?
Plant potatoes in the spring, 3 weeks before the frost date.
The potatoes should flower–you can harvest “new potaotes” (small, thin skins) 2-3 weeks after they flower. Or, wait until the plants die. Dig up the “late potaotes” (larger, tough skins) and brush off dirt. Store in a cool, dark, dry place until ready to eat. Don’t wash until just before you cook them.
