Question on growing potatoes in straw
You've been really helpful in helping me ID some plants on my property, I was hoping you can help me with a question on growing potatoes.
This is my first year growing potatoes and I am mounding them in straw. All the websites say that, as the potatoes grow, once they get 4-6 inches above the straw, you pile on more. My question is, when do I STOP adding straw? I've been mounding and my mounds are almost a foot tall! When should I stop and just let the potatoes grow?
Thanks for your help!
