Ok, more than one question actually...
I grew potatoes for the first time last year. Kept "hilling" them with straw, but didn't get many at harvest. I must've missed a few small ones since I see some potato plants growing in that spot. This is a small terraced area, about 6 feet long.
1. Will it be ok to let them keep growing in that spot? I know it's generally recommended to grow in different soil each year to prevent diseases. Or should I rip them up? If rip up, what is the minimum distance away to consider for planting new potatoes?
2. If it's ok to let those keep growing there, should I go ahead & plant the rest of my seed potatoes there also? I have limited growing areas so want to consolidate planting to one spot.
Thanks for your advice!
