when to dig potatoes?

I (my kids) planted potatoes for the first time this year and the plants are waist high with little flowers starting to blossom. When is it time to get out the diggers and go hunting in the soil for potatoes??
Thanks for the info...Dean

Smile When to dig them taters

Hi Dean,

As a rule of thumb you can start enjoying new small Potatos when the plants flower. For full size potatos wait until the Tops start turning yellow and dying. Then just dig them as you need them.

It won't hurt to leave them inground for a while, Unless you plan on storing them for Winter.
