Potatoes being eaten by critters?

8 years ago

Hey guys,
I planted potatoes march 3rd in wire cages. (I know it isn't the best in Ok) Nothing has sprouted yet and today I found mounds of dirt in 2 different places right against the cages. My hubby said it looked like mole or gofer mounds.
Do critters eat seed potatoes from the ground or is it just taking a while for my potatoes to sprout? I tried to research it and couldn't find how long it takes for potatoes to emerge after you plant them?
Should I disturb the soil and see if the seed potatoes are still in there?
