Wimpy Potatoes

We are starting to get excited about our garden. Well, my husband was getting excited before Christmas even got here. Since I do the canning...the winter break is enjoyable for me. My question to you is this: Do any of you have trouble getting a good crop of potatoes? We have tried a couple of different methods of growing...but they just don't do very good. We have the normal garden that seems to take turns producing a bumber crop of various things from year to year. The potatoes just don't put on much of a show though. Any pointers? #gardening

    I have had great success with growing potatoes. I have been doing it the last several years. The important thing I learned was making mounds. And as the plant matures, you continue to add dirt to the mound. Remember that even though the plant has died
