Potatoes setting seed
I hope someone can help me with this problem. My potato plants flowered (sporadically) but when I tried to dig up new potatoes there was not much there. Now, where there were flowers are now round berry type seed pods. Should they be there or not? If not, should I remove them?
Before I started my certified potatoes I double dug the bed, tested the ph of the soil, ammended the soil, and used Gurney's Potato fertilizer. Throughout the season the garden has gotten ample rain and regular waterings. I hilled up the potatoes at least 3' high yet they grew way taller than that -now they are about 3' higher than the hilling height.
As this is the first time I've ever grown potatoes I wonder if any of this is normal? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all!
