Planting potatoes

<< < (6/6)

Hello,
I'm new here (to the forum) but have been listening for a while.  The potato subject caught my eye because I have a "batch" of potatoes growing, but am concerned.  I LOVE the boxes you built and will add another layer to mine (next year) which should solve my problem.  Here is my problem:  I am doing the square foot gardening system (not the problem yet...) and have a deep box for my potatoes.  I've read that you need to keep the green growth of the potatoes covered with straw to keep the potatoes from being toxic.  Problem is with the above ground garden, the straw keeps falling/being pushed off by the growth of the plants.  Now what?  Thanks in advance to those of you smart people that know what to do!   :)
