My potatoes are just starting to blossom. Should I top dress them with any thing to promote tuber growth?

If you prepared the soil adequately prior to planting and have been top dressing with compost when you covered them each time, then additional fertilizer should not be necessary at this point. You will get the best potatoes in a good rich, light soil. Once they bloom, be sure to cut back on watering a bit.
