You can harvest a few potatoes from a potato plant and leave other on the plant to get larger and for some smaller potatoes to develop as well. But, this will only happen if you leave the potato plant largely intact and only harvest a few potatoes at a time.
If you pull up the whole plant and remove the potatoes and replant the plant, it will likely die and if it does not, it will not have the time or energy to grow more potatoes before them end of the season.
I am growing potatoes for the first time. I cut each seed potato so that each one had a couple of eyes on it. Now each potato has sprouted multiple shoots. Should I cut all but one per plant or let them all grow?
We experienced frost early Sunday morning that damaged my potato plants (leaves are all brown) that were planted in April. Will the plants survive and produce potatoes or will I need to pull them out and replant?
A light frost should not hurt the plant. These articles will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/tips-for-saving-cold-damaged-plants.htm
