Hi GG, I am critically in need of your advice.  Album Link

I am attaching the pics of my potato plants which I am trying to grow in bags. These are 4 bags and the third from the left was a whole chitting potato which I sow directly . Rest are patches of potatoes which had chits coming out. I buried them in the soil and they came up so well and then I transplanted them in bags.

The "whole one" did best out of all four (in terms of greens ,branches and height, rest remained thin & leggy)  but for last couple of weeks (around 3 ) they don't look happy any more as they used to look before. I started with these plants in October mid and wondering if they are dying because the potatoes are ready to harvest. I am not sure about the variety as I picked the normal ones used in the kitchen.

Please advice..

Thanks in advance

Viny
