When the blossoms are on the stalks they are sprayed. They are dug when the blossoms fall off.
When the potatoes are dug they are put into a pit in the garden. The pit is covered with ferns or rushes, and hen earth is put on the ferns. If they are allowed to remain in the garden during the Winter months, they are secured with rushes against the cold rains of Winter.
