Digging up potatoes is the most fun I’ve ever had in the garden. I planted these on a whim because some potatoes I bought at market had started to sprout. I tried a method that I had read about where you just lay the potatoes on top of the soil and heavily mulch with straw. The thing that’s so great about them is that you’re not even sure it’s working or how many you’ll get until you dig them up. I grew over 25 lbs. of potatoes from just a couple of dollars invested. The largest ones are over 1 lb. It really felt miraculous. Woohooooo!
