Well, I've read that the time to harvest the potatoes is when the leaves wilt and turn brown. God help me, but there is nothing left for me to do but let them wilt and turn brown. No amount of water seems to make a difference, so, up they come! It's not too bountiful of a harvest - 2lbs, 9oz. At a value of $1.12/lb, that's not too great! Meh, at least I got the seed potatoes for free.
You smoke a hoot, move to a boot, and file for bankruptcy!
