I am going to try a new wayI am going to try a new way of planting potatoes this year. You put newspaper down about 5 or 6 thick, put your potatoes down and cover with peat moss. Then you water them. When potatoes come up you keep adding peat moss until about 10 to 12 inches deep. When potatoes are dried you can harvest, no digging. A couple in their 70's told me this is the way they grow their potatoes. They get about a 100 pounds out of 10 pounds.
