Then I just let them start growing.

Will get a pic. A 20 pound bag of potatoes next to indoor 2021.

Harvesting potatoes seems like a lot of work.

I was thinking about sticking them in a steep hillside so harvesting them might be a little easier. If you can get a little land-slide going with a hoe. Does that make any sense ?
Hell yeah, although I like to call it bagseed potatoes Here's a pic from back in 2015 when I planted the common russet and reds. I'm not sure what those little pink ones are, but I remember them being the best. Since then I've purchased seed potato, but as a small hobbyist gardener, why not just use store bought that's already in the house?

Growing potatoes was trial and error for me. First time I dug too deep and didn't focus enough on hilling. Incorporating some hay into the mix helped as well. Not sure if I can answer your question about planting on a hillside, but if that's what you're doing, look into terrace farming.

Hilling potatoes is key! Also they like a little extra sulfer.

Store potatoes work great! I like to see what comes from them. I use seed potatoes for my big crops just because they tend to be uniform and disease resistance.

A fresh dug potato is just amazing. It really spoils you once you get used to them.
