hello, I am wondering if after the plant browns off is it ok to leave in the ground and do the potatos still grow a little. I was told by an older gardener they get tuffer skins and store better any truth to this.



If you are asking about potatoes I would harvest if the haulms (tops) had died back but Tugbrethil can comment for the US

Sorry, Moon_grower and Plantandpray! I have had very little experience with potatoes, and none of it successful. Plantandpray, you might want to check the publications of your local Cooperative Extension for the best info for your area.
