Thanks for any help. I built a raised bed and was wanting to fill it in with compost. Is there anything I can put in first? I think I’m going to find some cardboard as a weed barrier, but anything to layer it? Thanks again. Love your web site! Joe

Potatoes like mild weather so they are typically planted in spring. In your case, from March to April. Then, harvest the potatoes when the plants have completely died back, about three months later.
You can buy garden soil or top soil to put in the raised bed. Then generously mix in the compost.
