Eat them I hear you say!

The problem is my potato plants are grown and I've harvested a few already. But what do I do with the rest that are still in the ground. Do I harvest them all and put them into storage or leave them in the ground until need them?

Thanks in advance!

I'm surprised you've been ignored but I'd say it's about time you lifted them? (see other thread on storage methods.

It's always a question of balance. Leave them in long enough to grow fully but not TOO long so that they rot or are eaten.

Thanks for the reply. I was beginning to wonder alright!

There's a few dry evening's coming soon so I'd better get digging.
