I hope you are exaggerating when you say, nothing. How long of a growing season do you have left?
Last week I dug one plant from my early potatoes and got 3 pounds. I never had any luck when trying to rob a plant of new potatoes, so I harvest the whole plant and feel bad for all the tiny tubers I dug.
When I saw this message, I just dug one plant from my late potato crop, and got 1 and 3/4ths pound. The plant had just started to flower, a clear sign it is not ready to dig.
