A bar at the end of the tines protects the potatoes and the spacing and shape allows the potatoes to be sifted from the soil. Forged from stainless steel with a hardwood handle. When harvesting, loosen the soil around the base of the plants first, then lift them up from the ground. After harvesting potatoes, remember to leave them lying on the top of the soil for a few hours to dry off in the sun. Then brush off any excess soil and discard any that have been damaged. Remember that you don’t need to harvest all your potatoes at the same time.
