Here is a patch of straw potatoes that I wanted to dig up and see what was what.
I pulled back the straw on some 4 or 5 plants and the yield is very low. This is because we didnt put enough straw on these to make a deep thatch.
KD points out some of the potatoes.
A close up.
We have quite a few more patches that we will be letting go for some time to allow all the tiny potatoes to grow to adulthood.
I think I like this method but next year I will also be planting them in the ground.
Can’t have too many homegrown organic potatoes!
