Re: potatoes

If you are harvesting new potatoes  you can carefully dig around the plant and find a few potatoes leaving the plant in the intact, dig for  new potatoes about the time blossoms appear.

For winter storage wait about two weeks after the tops have died down to the ground. Dig potatoes in dry weather and take care not to bruise the skins.

New potatoes are quite tasty and sweet because their sugar have not converted to starch, they are great or the grill or roasted.

Harvest the Sweet Potatoes as soon as they turn black after the first frost. In frost free area harvest late frost. Handle the potatoes like eggs before you dry them.
