If you have potato beetles on
If you have potato beetles on your plants (eating your plants!) you should be able to see them. If so, you can treat with sevin dust and/or pick them off (again and again and again). If, however, as you say, your plants have bloomed and now the foliage is dying back, it might be time to harvest. Dig around and pick out one or two spuds and see what you think. If they look good, give yourself a pat on the back and enjoy this great treat. Small, "new" potatoes are delicious. Cook them anyway you would prepare regular potatoes.
