Can't wait to harvest mine. I have planted charlotte too, they have gone crazy. Do you harvest these when they flower or when the flowers die?

@loopylauz - I usually wait for the flowers to die back, but you should be okay to harvest as long as the potatoes have had enough time to develop, which usually takes between three and four months! 😀

Oh lol I think they have been in there for about 2.5 months so not too much longer 😆

@loopylauz - I had some in for about six or seven months last year, and all of the leaves had disappeared! I thought I'd lost the crop, but when I emptied the sack it was almost full of potatoes! I was eating them for weeks! lol 😁
