Rain buried seed potatoes too deep

Looks like today’s inch and a half of rain caused enough erosion that my newly planted seed potatoes, which were about 4 inches deep, are now about 9 to 10 inches deep. Should I try to partially uncover them, or will they still do OK if I just give them time?

maybe just take your hoe and remove 4-5in. they may still grow up thru it if you have a lighter soil. in clayey soil id definitly remove some.


No problem.

We plant ours that deep anyway, so just let them emerge as they will
