I'm excited to try this, but I'm curious if anyone has tried this method and has thoughts on their results? Has anyone been able to regrow potatoes in one season by just tossing them back in the ground?

I didn't harvest them in March, that is when I planted them, towards the end of the month. They are a pretty quick growing variety and were flowering by the end of May. The tops haven't all died back yet, I just dug some up early to munch on and do this dormancy/chitting experiment. I'm in Zone 7, too, near Asheville, NC.
