Can anyone tell me what's going on with my potatoe plants leaves. They are beginning to turn yellow around the base of the plants closest to the soils. They are in 5 gallon buckets with lots of drainage holes. I water them every other day or sometimes every 3 days. They've been growing fine until recently. I have one tatter per bucket. There are not bugs or anything on the leaves. My poor babies.😢 They have been growing about 2 monthsenter image description here

    Potatoes normally grow for about 10 to 20 weeks depending on the variety. If you have some leaves turning yellow after "about 8 weeks" it could be they are almost fully grown and starting to die. Don't harvest them until all the leaves are completely dead.
