Video#21 - Harvesting Potatoes From The Leaf Pile

Today we focus on how to harvest the potatoes from the leaf pile and knowing when to harvest.

  1. How interesting. I put shredded leaves on top of my potato beds but I've never grown them just in leaves.

  2. Great harvest, looks like it works well. Thanks so much for linking up at the #UnlimitedLinkParty 132. Pinned.
