Q.straw potatoes flowering
I live in northern Illinois and planted straw potatoes at the end of April. The question I have is the potato plants are starting to flower. Is this a problem? I wouldn’t think so but I thought I would ask on this fine Father’s Day. Mark

You can just remove the flowers, or leave them. Some people like to remove them so the plant focuses more on the tubers while others leave them to ensure they do not accidentally allow disease into the plants through the cuts.
