Potatoes need full sun and prefer well-drained, light, deep, loose soil, high in organic matter. Potatoes grow best in acid soil with pH 4.8 - 5.5. If you used a fertilizer with high nitrogen content your potatoes may have put a lot of their energy into the top growth. The rain may also have contributed to the poor harvest.
