I posted a question about 2 months ago about growing potatoes in a raised bed and received some really good responses. I planted the potatoes on 14/4 and they seem to be doing well so much so that the leaves are now above the height of the raised bed. What should I do now and when should I be looking to pull them out of the soil?

Thank you in advance for any responses

    If they are first earlies then when they are in flower dig around the roots and see if they are big enough to lift, if they are second early or maincrop then not for a couple of months yet at the earliest.
