Gardening on a Hill

I recently planted potatoes on the side of a slopped hill, recently we got a hard and steady rain and it eroded some of our potatoes out and eroded our garden. We have tiered our hills that we planted. what do you suggest or is there a site we can get more info and pics of how we should approach this Thank-you tractorman in Dalton Ga.
