This is a follow up to this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R-1tdrEC_XI from May 31, 2011. Part 1 video was planting, now we are approximately 6 weeks later and this would be considered about mid-season. This timing differs from season to season depending on many factors like the weather, the quality of the seed potatoes and the soil, many things. Last time we grew these we had flowers by now, so these are running slightly slower, we haven’t had much sun or heat this summer so far. The progress of the above ground plant gives you some insight into the potential future harvest. We dont want to disturb the roots to see how the potatoes under are growing, and it is not necessary since the above ground plants in this case are telling me that the lack of heat and sun has probably adversely affected this years crop which will most likely result in a less than optimal yield. We will see.
Next video will be harvesting, then the one following will be cleaning and storing
