At Hoople, North Dakota, T.J. Hall started planting fresh potatoes during the week of May 10. The potatoes are being planted deeper than usual to reach moisture. “After you turn the soil over, things can dry out quickly,” says Hall. “One thing that can happen if you plant deeper in potatoes, if there’s a big rain and they haven’t matured yet, they can drowned out easily, too. There’s a fine line there.”
