Here are some of the potatoes from the last box my mom had growing. Great size!
My potatoes are not far from being harvested. I have not added soil for a while now, but I did notice the other day that there were lots of ants crawling on one of the plants and around the stem. With a little research, I found out that this could potentially be very bad for my potatoes. In a small ‘freak out’ moment I had, I decided to use my old standby – dish-washing fluid. I put a squirt or two of dish-washing soap with a gallon or so of water and watered the potatoes. The ants are gone now! – But I am not sure how much damage, if any at all, that they have done. The plants are turning more yellow now, so I know I will be harvesting them soon. It is all an experiment, but I really hope I have potatoes in there!!
