I have three rows of potato plants that are growing really well. I have another row of carrots in the same bed. The carrots have sprouted, but they are still small.
The leaves of the potatoes in the nearby row are just starting to get next to the carrots and I'm worried that they will eventually start to shade the carrots before they have a chance to fight for the sunlight.
I was considering trimming the potatoes, but I wasn't sure if that would significantly inhibit their growth or cause some other undesirable.
