We are growing about 1400 row feet of various potatoes. Dug them in the past with a middlebuster, which lifts the taters just fine, but leaves the crew scrabbling around in the dirt for the spuds that just got reburied beside the newly opened furrow. No one likes it like that.
I am considering an I & J potato digger -- basically a cut down middlebuster with 4 or 5 rebar "wings" coming out the back. $275. Anybody have one? Do you like it? Other options I am unaware of?
All the best,
