You may remember I planted potatoes this spring. All summer I had been dreaming of a nice potato harvest. I read a little on potato gardening, but I must have done something wrong. I thought for sure there would be a lot of potatoes when we dug them up. But, that's all we got in the picture below.
I put dirt on top whenever the plants grew, leaving just the tops of the plants out. They grew to about 4 feet tall and flowered then after a while the plants died. I waited about 6 weeks before digging them up. And that's all we got, enough for one meal. So, all you gardeners out there, please tell me where I went wrong.
