When to pick potatoes

Pick after the flowers have appeared and before the stems wilt. Potatoes keep growing if left in the ground but will be more vulnerable to pests and diseases.

How to store potatoes

Freshly harvested potatoes taste delicious, but do not store well. To store, leave them in the sun for a few hours to dry. Rub the excess mud off and store in a cool, dark place in a burlap sack for up to 6 months, or in a pit (clamp). Only store perfect potatoes.
