Prairie Dome Seed Potatoes, Strawberries, and Saskatoons

8. Harvest

  • Seed potatoes are ready to harvest from late July to mid September.
  • Ripening yellow leaves indicate the plant has matured.
  • You may dig in the hill or container to check the size of the tubers if you suspect the potatoes are finished growing.
  • When ripe, you may remove the vine but leave the potatoes undisturbed in the soil for a few days to all their skin to further set and harden.
  • Potatoes can be removed all at once, or removed from the soil as needed. Important: make sure to remove any remaining potatoes from the ground before the first frost.
