Potato Progress

My potatoes in pots are thriving.  Tuesday, I added more planting medium  to the pot, because as the potatoes grow, their stems need to be covered with dirt.  I added a mixture of grass clippings, dried out leaves from last fall, and some soil to cover all but about 4 inches of the top of the stems.  Eventually, I will fill the pots to their tops and the pots will be topped with huge crowns of potato leaves and flowers.


  1. They look great! Mine are doing quite well too. I've been covering the roots often...I hope it will help me have lots of yummy taters! Are you planning on picking yours as new potatoes or leaving them until they are fully grown?

  2. I will fish some out as new potatoes and leave the rest. I LOVE new potatoes and peas!!!!

  3. YUM!! That sounds great! I think I'm going to get some new ones too. I don't think I'll be able to hold off!!
