Once scab is present in the garden soil what can be done to rid or minimize the severity of the problem without actually moving the garden or plant rotation. We have limited space. We have heard a sulfer additive is recommended.

cover the stalks, leaving the top leaves showing. Continue in this fashion until you reach the top of the cylinder.

You can begin harvesting when the first flowers appear, for those small, thin-skinned "new potatoes". Or wait until just before the first frost for full-sized potatoes. To harvest, simply remove the chicken wire and the potatoes will be easy to find!
