Volunteer potatoes

Asked September 20, 2017, 6:45 PM EDT

A huge potato plant has grown since June and recently quit blooming. Plant is still green and healthy - any chance of potatoes beneath? Should I let it continue to grow and hope for no frost?

Go ahead and check to see if there are potatoes beneath. It is the end of the growing season when you would want to harvest. Seeing as this is not a perennial plant, you may as well go ahead and check. I assume this was not an ornamental, sweet potato vine.
