1  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Any tater-guru's out there? on: May 24, 2010 08:51:14 AM
I'm growning potatoes for the very first time and am coming across a lot of odd tips'n'tricks.  So I think I've concluded through my online research that I can stop worrying about covering the lower parts of the plants after they've started blooming, and I can pick a bit after they've stopped blooming.

I've been told to cover up any 'baby' potatoes that I see on the surface so they don't get sunburned... do they look like mini-taters?  Will I know for sure when I see them??  How long can they grow above the surface before they develop green bits? (Perhaps I'll actually have plenty of time to spot them and cover.)

I'm probably being too darn nervous... they're just potatoes after all.   Cheesy
