I've always read that when the potatoes are ready for harvest, the plant will 'die' (leaves wither) but of course the potatoes will still be living. Did your plant form leaves, and then die away?

Found on the 'net...

Plants are green topped, no tubers. Temperatures are too warm. Potatoes require cool nights below at about 55°F for good tuber formation. Plant so that tubers mature in cool weather.

Sorry your 'tators didn't turn out well :( I only like the white Idaho potatoes, and come to think of it, I've never known anybody around here to grow anything but red potatoes.

Will make good use of my dehydrator to make sure I have an ample supply of white 'tators when the big balloon goes up ;)
