By Weeze

I have planted popatoes in a pot and put them outside to grow on oue fire escape because we live on the 3rd floor. I am not sure just when to dig them up. Please help me.
The leaves are starting to turn yellow now. My email is Thank you



The best way to check them is to put your hand down the side of the pot and feel how big they are.

I would tip them out now, Louise.

All our potatoes were harvested a while ago. If the tops have died back then they wont get any bigger so, as B says, tip them out and good luck!
