If you grew potatoes this summer, you may have already been enjoying them.
You can dig or "scratch" the small tender potatoes while the plant is still growing.
However, eventually -- in fact, right now, in many regions -- the potato vines will begin dying.
Once the vines have been dead a couple of weeks, you can go ahead and dig them up.
A couple of tater tips: Don't dig them in bright sunlight or strong wind, and be careful not to cut or bruise them.
You can brush off sandy dirt or wash off sticky clay soil (but make sure you dry them thoroughly).
For longest storage, place the potatoes in a moderately moist, cool (about 40°F), well-ventilated spot.
