|Question about plating Potatoes....
||[Apr. 6th, 2008|11:29 am]
I ordered a set of Yukon Gold from Gruney's Seed and Nursery Co. The instructions that came with it are a little confusing. First I should say that I will be planting them in "Potato Bag" planters (Self contained and movable sacks of earth that are designed for potatoes). The part of the instructions that is confusing is where they say, |
"Do not dig up entire plant.
Carefully dig larger tubers, leaving the
smaller ones to continue to grow. Harvest
for winter storage when plant tops begin
to dry. Leave tubers in the garden for a
day to cure the skins, then store in a cool,
dark, airy place."
How can I dig the larger ones up if I need to leave them in the ground after the plant tops begin to dry? This just doesn't make sense to me
Please give me some advice. Thanks
