Get Set, Grow! Episode Eight

Harvest your first early potatoes and find out how things are growing on the Get Set, Grow! plot

It’s time to harvest your first early potatoes! Around June or July you will be ready to lift your potatoes – but keep in mind these may not store well, so you will want to cook and eat them as soon as possible.

Lettie shows a couple of different techniques for harvesting your first potato crop, and offers a quick recap on how to remove annual and perennial weeds in this eighth episode of Get Set, Grow!
